Auction Details

Auction Terms & Details:

Bidding Ends Thursday, April 25th, 2019 @ 4:00 PM

Peoples Company is handling the sale of two properties owned by The Iowa Department of Transportation through their Online Auction Service. Properties are located in Lee and Louisa Counties. Properties included in the auction consist of a former Iowa DOT maintenance facility and tillable farmland.

All bidding concludes on Thursday, April 25th, 2019 at 4:00 PM Central Time Zone (CST)

A bid placed within 5 minutes of the scheduled close of the auction will extend bidding by 5 minutes until all bidding is completed. If you plan to bid, please register 24 hours prior to close of auction. Under no circumstances shall Bidder have any kind of claim against Peoples Company or its affiliates if the Internet service fails to work correctly before or during the auction. 

ALL BIDS ARE TOTAL PRICE AND NOT PER ACRE. 

Purchase Agreement and Earnest Money:
The Winning Bidder will receive an “Offer to Buy” document from the Iowa DOT shortly after the conclusion of the auction and will serve as the purchase agreement for the tract being purchased. A 10% earnest money payment is required upon conclusion of the auction and must be received by Peoples Company within two (2) business days from the day of the auction. Earnest money will need to be received prior to Seller receiving possession of the property (Possession given by signing the Mutual Benefit Lease). The balance of the purchase price will be due on or before the closing date of Friday, May 24th, 2019.

Closing and Possession:
Possession will be granted through a “Mutual Benefit Lease” to be signed upon conclusion of the auction by the Winning Bidder for each tract and the Seller. Once the Mutual Benefit Lease is signed and earnest money is deposited, possession of the property will be granted to the Winning Bidder. This lease will terminate once the State Land Patent is received by the Winning Bidder. Balance of purchase price is due and payable on or before the closing date of Friday, May 24th, 2019. If the balance is not paid on or before closing, the Buyer risks forfeiting the 10% earnest money and cancellation of the Mutual Benefit Lease.

Farm & Building Leases:
All leases have been terminated on these properties and possession will be given once the Mutual Benefit Lease is signed by Winning Bidder and Seller.

Surveys:
Tract 2 has been surveyed. Survey for Tract 2 will be recorded with the Lee county recorder's office. This will be recorded along with the State Land Patent.

Title Information:
Title will be granted when the State of Iowa issues a Land Patent Deed approximately 60 - 90 days after the conclusion of the auction. Buyer will not receive an abstract of title. Should a Buyer want an abstract of title and / or a title search completed, it shall be at their sole discretion, responsibility, and expense. Once all monies are received, Buyer should allow for 60 - 90 days for issuance of the State Land Patent.

Access to the Property:
Neither the Seller nor Peoples Company guarantee access to the properties. Winning bidder will be responsible for acquiring access to the properties at their sole expense. Call Agent for details with access questions. Please do not assume access to the property.
