Sales are conducted on Wednesdays at 10:00 a.m. in the Lobby of the Sheriff's Department Justice Center, 515 W. Moreland Boulevard, Waukesha, Wisconsin.

The Sheriff is a ministerial officer of the Court and is without power to make any terms except those authorized and prescribed by the Court. He sells only the judgment debtor's title. If there is no title, the purchaser acquires none. The rule of Caveat Emptor (let the buyer beware) is fully applicable to sales made under execution.

Foreclosure sales are for real property only. The Sheriff's Office does not know whether or not persons occupy the property. Further, we cannot give permission for any prospective bidders to enter and inspect any structure that may be located on the property to be sold. All property is sold "As Is".

Properties sold at auction by the Sheriff's Office are generally advertised in local area newspapers. A copy of the notice of sale shall be printed each week for 3 successive weeks in a newspaper of the county prior to the date of sale.

In addition to newspaper advertising, notices of sale are posted for public viewing at the Sheriff Department Lobby as well as the Municipality where the property being sold is located.

Sales of property are "open-type" auction sales (no sealed bids). A minimum bid is normally bid on the first round by the Plaintiff.

The successful bidder, upon full payment of the bid, will receive a Sheriff's Deed. This deed may not give clear title to the property. In order to obtain a clear title one must satisfy all superior liens and encumbrances. If a purchaser does not complete the sale, he can be held liable for his deposit, and for all losses and expenses.

If you are interested in a particular piece of property, we recommend a title search before you actually bid.

Private firms conduct title searches. Their telephone numbers may be found in the yellow pages of the telephone directory. A fee is charged.

Should you have a legal question, we recommend you consult an attorney.

If the property you purchase is occupied, it is your responsibility to have the occupants removed.

In most cases the owner can redeem the property, even after the sale, for a period of 10 calendar days from the date of sale. By law the owner can declare bankruptcy within that same period.


A. Each property is sold subject to restrictions of record which are unknown to the Sheriff and subject to any unpaid taxes and water bills or assessments, and such state of facts as an accurate survey and physical inspection of the premises may reveal.

B. The highest bidder at the sale shall be the Purchaser. If any dispute arises as to who may be the highest bidder, the property will be resold.

C. If you are the successful bidder on a property, you are required to post a deposit of 10% of the total bid price in cash, certified check, bank check, or money order immediately after the close of that sale. Certified checks MUST be made payable to: Waukesha County Sheriff Department.. NO COMPANY, AGENCY OR PERSONAL CHECKS WILL BE ACCEPTED.

D. The PURCHASER may be required to pay recording fees and Real Estate Transfer Fees.


  1. Subject to any unpaid municipal liens, unpaid taxes and assessments.

  9. If the subject premises be a Condominium, the sale is subject to any unpaid assessments, which may be a lien on the premises, and subject to all applicable provisions of the Master Deed and by-laws of Condominium Association.

There are times when the sale of property is not completed on the date advertised because of adjournments, settlements or bankruptcies.
