Answer: Yes. The owner is required to apply for and pay a permit from Bexar County for their sale. That permit needs to be procured in advance of the beginning of the sale and left with the staff attending your sale. Bexar County does not have a specific permit for Estate Sales but will issue a Garage Sale license to the owner. Cost is about $20.00. Occasionally, the Code Enforcement will show up at the sale and we must have this permit on site for them or the owner can be subject to a code violation and a fine.
