Case No.: 16 2 00124 8 AMENDED NOTICE OF AND SUMMONS FOR FORECLOSURE OF LIENS FOR DELINQUENT REAL PROPERTY TAXES INCLUDING ASSESSMENTS WHICH ARE THE RESPONSIBILITY OF THE COUNTY TREASURER TO COLLECT. THE STATE OF WASHINGTON TO THE SAID DEFENDANTS: 1. A lawsuit has been started to foreclose real property tax liens on the property described in this notice and the attachments to the Amended Certificate of Delinquency filed in this cause of action. Our records reveal that you may own or have an interest in this property see attached “Exhibit A”. 2. Pacific County is the owner and holder of an Amended Certificate of Delinquency issued on October 6th, 2016, for the delinquent real property taxes, interest and penalties owed on the real property described herein for 2013 through 2016 and some prior years including assessments that are the responsibility of the County Treasurer to collect. 3. In order to defend against this foreclosure lawsuit, you must appear and defend this action answering this amended notice and summons in writing within thirty (30) days after service by publication of this amended notice and summons, exclusive of the day of service, or within thirty (30) days after service by mail of this amended notice and summons, exclusive of the day of service, whichever occurs first, or pay the amount due for taxes, assessments, interest, penalties, and foreclosure costs. All pleadings and process may be served upon Pacific County by serving the same upon the undersigned Treasurer of Pacific County, Renée L. Goodin, at the address stated below. Your original notice of appearance should be directed to the Clerk of Superior Court, Virginia A. Leach, P. O. Box 67, South Bend, WA. 98586, and should reference this case number and the parcel number of the property you claim an interest in. 4. If you wish to seek the advice of an attorney in this matter you should do so promptly so that your written answer, if any, may be served on time. 5. Important—Judgment and Order of Sale Without Notice. Pacific County will apply to the Superior Court on November 28, 2016, or as soon thereafter as the court allows, for a judgment foreclosing its lien for taxes and an order to sell the property against which judgment is rendered. If you fail to answer or pay the amount due, a default judgment will be entered against the property foreclosing the lien for taxes, assessments, interest, penalties, and foreclosure costs against the land and premises described herein and in the attachments to the Amended Certificate of Delinquency on file herein. A default judgment is one where Pacific County is entitled to have the application for judgment foreclosing the tax lien granted because you have not responded. A default judgment will be entered without notice unless you or your attorney serve a notice of appearance on the undersigned Treasurer, or the County’s Prosecuting Attorney. The judgment would be against the property and not a personal judgment against you. 6. On the attached “Exhibit A” there is listed the property tax number of the property that you may own or in which you have some legal interest. Please make reference to the tax parcel number in your answer, notice of appearance, or any other response or correspondence concerning this foreclosure action. 7. If judgment is rendered against the property, either by default or after a hearing by the court, the property will be ordered to be sold. The property against which judgment is rendered will be sold, unless redeemed prior to the date of sale at a public auction commencing at 10:00 a.m. on Friday, December 9, 2016. The public auction will be held at the Pacific County Court House, Rotunda, 300 Memorial Drive, South Bend, Washington. 8. Important—Redemption Rights. The property may be redeemed from foreclosure, and sale of the property avoided, by paying the delinquent taxes, interest, penalties, and foreclosure costs prior to the day of the public auction before December 9, 2016. The payment must be by cash, cashier’s check or money order. The right to redeem the property expires at 5:00 p.m. the day before the public auction. There is no right of redemption on the day of or after the public auction, except as provided under Chapter RCW 84.64 for mentally incompetent persons and minors. 9. Important – Right to Surplus Sale Proceeds. If the property is not redeemed from foreclosure and you are the recorded owner of the property on June 7th, 2016, the day upon which the certification was filed (the Amended Certificate of Delinquency was filed on October 6th, 2016), i.e., you are the person who held title on the date of issuance of the certificate of delinquency, you are entitled to any sale proceeds which exceed the taxes, interest, penalties, and foreclosure costs. 10. Exemption for Elderly and Disabled. This action will be dismissed if you are eligible for deferral of taxes under Chapter RCW 84.38 due to age or disability and file a declaration to defer taxes in accordance with the requirements of that chapter. The Pacific County Treasurer’s Office can assist you in filing a declaration if you call (360) 875-9421 or (360) 642-9421. You will be advised to contact the Pacific County Assessor’s Office for the documents necessary to apply for deferral of the taxes, but the Treasurer’s Office must be contacted for a declaration form in order to remove your property from the tax sale. 11. Interest accrues at the rate of 12% per year. A penalty of 8% of the 2016 property tax will be assessed December 1, 2016, if the property is not redeemed before that date. 12. You may obtain further information regarding the matter set forth above, including the total amount of interest, penalties, and foreclosure costs payable at the time of redemption and a full, unabbreviated legal description of this property, by contacting the Pacific County Treasurer’s Office, Pacific County Courthouse, 300 Memorial Drive, South Bend, Washington, (Post Office Box 98, South Bend, WA 98586), or calling (360) 875-9421 or (360) 642-9421. 13. Request for Notice of Judgment and Sale Dates. If you desire to know the dates on which application for judgment will occur, such information will be supplied upon written notice to the Treasurer. The foreclosure sale will take place on December 9, 2016. Unless you specifically request notice of the date judgment is applied for, THIS WILL BE YOUR FINAL NOTICE.
