Before the Sale

An information package on each property up for sale will be available. The package includes a property description (Schedule A to the Deed) as well as a map obtained from Property Online (Access Nova Scotia).

Prospective bidders are encouraged to do their own research prior to arriving at the sale. The following links may be of assistance (Note: you will need the Assessment Account Number (AAN) for the property you are researching):

  • Property Valuation Services Corporation (PVSC) – Look up property assessment information using the Assessment Account Number through PVSC.
  • Municipal Government Act (MGA) – Interested bidders are encouraged to seek independent legal advice on the tax sale process. PART VI of the MGA deals with Tax Collection and Tax Sale law.
  • East Hants Interactive Mapping Tool – Using either the AAN or complete address of the property, various mapping information is available through our Interactive Mapping Tool.

In Spring 2023, Information for Prospective Bidders will be made available that should be reviewed prior to the sale.  To aid in the registration process, anyone planning on bidding at the tax sale should fill out a Bidder Registration Form prior to arrival.  Please arrive 20 minutes prior to the sale to provide sufficient time to register.
