What happens to the excess proceeds?
If a parcel is sold at a foreclosure auction for more than the amount owing, the previous record title owner can claim the surplus money. This is the party who held title on the day the Certificate of Delinquency was filed. The previous record title owner has up to three years from the date of the sale to claim the excess proceeds (RCW84.64.080).
