From the Gilmer County website:
If the owner breaks the Covenant a penalty of twice the taxes saved by the taxpayer will be imposed and interest at the rate of 1% per month will be assessed if not immediately reported.
If the Covenant is broken as a result of death or eminent domain (condemnation) no penalty will be assessed.
If the Covenant is broken as a result of medically demonstrable illness or foreclosure, the penalty will be the amount of taxes saved for the current year only.
Leases or contracts for billboard signs, cellular towers, or any type of non-qualifying use will breach the Covenant and all penalties will apply. Hunting leases are allowed.
If the property is sold, and if the purchaser continues using the property as it was originally covenanted then no penalty would be assessed. Purchaser must sign covenant agreeing to no change in use.
However, the taxpayer should be aware that if the use changes during the 10-year period all penalties would apply.

Auctioneer is not responsible for bidding errors caused by internet outages, bid platform failures, or power failures.
All of the properties sell individually as "lots" however they are all tied together by the auction clock. We will set a bid deadline for all of the assets. Once we get within 5 minutes of that bid deadline, any bid placed on Any of the assets will extend All of the assets another 5 minutes. This extension will continue until no bids are placed on any of the assets in a five-minute window.
This feature is in place partially to prevent "sniping" which can occur on online auctions with a hard deadline. It recreates the action of a "Live Auction". If your opponent bids in the waning seconds of the auction, you still get another chance to bid.
With that in mind, don't wait out the bid until the last second, because the auction will remain open. Waiting it out can only put you at risk for not getting your bid in before the 5-minute clock runs out.
