Auction Process:

Utah is an “Oral Bid” type state. All participants will need to register before the auction starts. Upon registration, each bidder will be assigned bidding number. The participant who bids the highest on a property is awarded the property. After the sale a quit claim deed (sometimes referred to as a quick clam deed) to the property will be sent out.

Bidding Types:

Utah uses two different types of bidding methods.

First, which is the most common method is the “Premium Bid”. The starting bid will include the back taxes, penalties, interest and any administrative costs. From there the property will be bid up in price until the bidding has stopped. The highest bidder will receive the deed to the property.
Second, is the “Bid Down Ownership” method. The starting bid will include the back taxes, penalties, interest, and any administrative costs. Those combined fees will be the starting bid, and from there they will bid down the ownership of the property starting at 100% of the property. Then they will start bidding down the percentage of the property until the final bid has been made. The lowest bidder will be given a percentage of ownership on that particular piece of property.
