Sale of Land by Public Tender
Municipal tax sale proceedings can begin once taxes have been in arrears for at least two years. When all collection efforts have been exhausted, no payment agreements have been negotiated, and the Township of Oro-Medonte has still been unable to secure payment of the tax arrears, the Township will start the tax sale registration process by registering the Tax Arrears Certificate on the parcel register at the Land Registry Office.
If full payment is not received within 280 days of the Tax Arrears Certificate registration, the Township will issue a Final Notice to the property owner(s) and all interested parties within 30 days after the expiry of the 280 day period. This final notice specifies the date on which the property will be advertised for public tender if the tax arrears remain unpaid or an extension agreement is not arranged.
Once a Tax Arrears Certificate has been registered, only full payment of the cancellation price will be accepted unless an extension agreement has been arranged. Full payment will be accepted up to the date of transfer of the property following a sale. In the event of non-payment, the Township will proceed with a municipal tax sale.
Partial payments are no longer permissible after the Tax Arrears Certificate has been registered at the Land Registry Office. Partial payments received in error will be returned to the property owner immediately. Full payment of the cancellation price will remove the Tax Arrears Certificate.

The highest qualifying tenderer will be notified by mail within 1 week following the public tender opening and will be provided with the balance to be paid. In order for the highest qualifying tenderer to be declared the successful tenderer, the balance due must be paid within 14 calendar days of the mailing date of the notice. Upon receiving notification, the highest qualifying tenderer may wish to retain a lawyer licenced to practice law in Ontario and in good standing with the Law Society of Upper Canada, preferably one who deals in these types of sales.
