All nonresidential commercial property for which property taxes and assessments have been in default for three or more years .
Any property the tax collector has received a request to bring the property to the next scheduled tax sale from a person of entity that has a nuisance abatement lien recorded against the property and for which property taxes and assessments have been in default for three or more years .
Any property that has been identified and requested for purchase by a city , county , city and county or nonprofit organization to serve the public benefit by providing housing or services directly related to low - income persons and for which property taxes and assessment have been in default for three or more years .

The parcels listed in this publication meet one or more of the conditions listed above and thus , will become subject to the tax collector’s power to sell on July 1 , at 12:01 a . m . , by operation of law . The tax collector’s power to sell will arise unless the property is either redeemed or made subject to an installment plan of redemption initiated as provided by law prior to the close of business on the last business day of June . The right to an installment plan terminates on the last business day of June , and , after that date , the entire balance due must be paid in full to prevent sale of the property at a tax sale . The right of redemption survives the property becoming subject to the power to sell , but terminates at the close of business on the last business day before the actual sale of the property by the tax collector .
All information concerning redemption or the initiation of an installment plan of redemption will be furnished , upon request , by the Tax Collector ' s Office , 625 Court St . , Room 100 , Finance Building , Martinez , CA , ( 925 ) 608 - 9500 .
