Turner Bids and Contracts

Tax-Acquired Property

The Board of Selectmen of the Town of Turner, Maine, is accepting bids for the purchase of the municipality’s interest in a tax-acquired property.  Bids must be in writing and in a sealed envelope marked “Tax Sale Bid” on the outside.  Bids must be received by the Town of Turner no later than 3:00 p.m. on Monday, June 21, 2021, at which time they will be opened and read aloud.  The bids will be awarded during the Board of Selectmen meeting at 6:30 p.m. that day.  Late or incomplete bids will not be considered, and the Board of Selectmen reserves the right to reject any or all bids as it deems in the best interest of the town.  Each bid must include the bidder’s name, mailing address and phone number, and must be accompanied by a deposit in the form of a bank check or U.S. Postal Service Money Order in an amount equal to or greater than 10 percent of the bid price.  The successful bidder’s deposit will be credited to the total purchase price for that parcel.  Deposits will be returned to the unsuccessful bidders.  Any bid which does not contain the proper deposit will be rejected.  The successful bidder will have until 4:30 p.m. on Wednesday, July 21, 2021, to complete the purchase.  The property will be conveyed by quitclaim deed without covenants.  In the event that a successful bidder fails, for any reason, to complete the purchase in the time stated, the bid acceptance is void and the bidder’s deposit shall be forfeited to the Town.  The Board of Selectmen may thereafter negotiate a sale of the property with any or all unsuccessful bidders.
