Excess Proceeds

Sheriff foreclosure sales may result in additional monies not needed to pay off debts or liens on the property. These overages are called excess proceeds. Butler County deposits these monies into an Excess Proceeds Fund.

Often funds are deposited because the individual(s) named on the court order cannot be located. There are also instances where the Judge has not determined to whom the excess belongs. These monies are held as “Unknown” on the Excess Proceeds list along with the case number.

Additional information can be found by searching the case number or name at the Butler County Clerk of Courts website.
