How to Locate Tax Lien Homes in Richmond, Virginia


The state of Virginia does not sell tax lien certificates when property taxes are past due. Instead, it auctions the full ownership — or deed — to properties that have unpaid taxes for two or more years. Tax auctions are held annually in most Virginia counties, but Richmond, Virginia, holds public tax auctions three to four times each year. Properties auctioned in Richmond are sold free of all liens and encumbrances.

  • Visit the tax sale program page of the Richmond Virginia Economic and Community Development website.

  • Scroll to the bottom of the page and review the list of current properties available for sale in the tax auction.

  • Visit the Motley's Auction website and review the current tax foreclosure auction properties list. Motley's Auction & Realty Group is the official auctioneer for the Richmond, Virginia, government. Alternatively, visit or call their offices.

  • Visit or call the Economic & Community Development office for the city of Richmond.
