Sales are conducted when real estate is ordered sold by
judgment of a court. The sheriff of the county in which the
real estate lies then acts much like a trustee in a foreclosure.
The sheriff publishes the names of the parties to the legal
action and a description of the property to be sold. After
publication, the property is sold according to the terms
set out in the published notice.
A Probate Court will from time to time order real estate sold
to settle the estate of a deceased individual. The details are
included in the published notice.
