Sheriff Sales

This posting is not required by law, but rather a courtesy to assist the general public. The information may change at anytime and should be confirmed directly with the Civil Department at the Sheriff's Office if you have any questions.

All sales will be conducted at the times published at the Poweshiek County Public Safety Building (South Door). Please use the door located on the south side of the building at the southwest corner. Sign-in prior to the start of the sale will be required and as well as registration for anyone wishing to bid. Please bring the required letter of guarantee (see example below) along with a check from the same institute the letter of guarantee is from, or cash.

Sample Letter of Guarantee

As Sheriff’s Sales are buyer beware, it is highly recommended that you contact an attorney before purchasing at a Sheriff’s Sale as you may not be purchasing what you think you are. The Poweshiek County Sheriff’s Office cannot give legal advice. 

For more information, please contact Cecily Carpenter, the Civil Division Office Deputy, at 641-623-5679.
