What are the payment requirements?

Denton County requires payment in the form of a cashier’s check or money order for the total amount that was bid. Payment plans are not accepted. Payment is not required at the time of purchase. However, the total amount must be paid by 4 pm on the day of sale unless special arrangements are made with the Sheriff’s Department. 

Special arrangements are sometimes made if the buyer banks out of state. No deposit is required before the sale.
