Potential bidders should also be advised that there are statutory prohibitions for certain people to bid on property. A tract, lot, or piece of real estate may not be sold, either directly or indirectly, to:
(1) Any person having a statutory right to redeem such real estate prior to such sale, pursuant to the provisions of K.S.A. 79-2803, and amendments thereto, except that this paragraph (1) shall not prohibit sale to any person or such person's assignee who held an interest in such real estate as mortgagee of record at the time of the sale;
(2) any parent, grandparent, child, grandchild, spouse, sibling, trustee or trust beneficiary who held an interest in a tract as owner or holder of the record title or who held an interest at any time when any tax constituting part of the county's judgment became due; or
(3) with respect to a title holding corporation, any current or former stockholder, current officer or director, or any person having a relationship enumerated in paragraph (2) to such stockholder, officer or director.
Property owners subject to the judicial foreclosure have a statutory right of redemption up until the date before the sale. In effect, this means a property owner can pay all due property taxes, plus their pro rata share of the costs of the case, and get their property out of foreclosure/the sale.
