“Anytime between there, the person who owns the property can get it back but they have to pay everything that the person who bid on it has as long as they have all of their paperwork in,” Ide said.
More than 140 parcels went without a buyer at the sale. Ide said these properties will be included in a Cass County commissioners certificate sale in January.
