A third party purchaser may file a motion to complete sheriff sale to close on an auctioned property.
FINALIZING THE COMPLETED SHERIFF SALE
If the Court grants the motion to complete sale the third-party purchaser must finalize the sale pursuant to Court Order. In most cases, the Judge orders the petitioner to pay the outstanding purchase price to the Office of the Sheriff of Philadelphia within thirty (30) days. Once the purchase price is paid in full the sheriff will execute a deed transfer to the third-party purchaser. When the deed is recorded with the City of Philadelphia the bidder will become legal and record owner.
