75-3315.Same; sale, how authorized; procedure for sale; form of deed. Any property, real or personal, acquired under the provisions of K.S.A. 76-12a08 or 75-3314 may be sold and title thereto conveyed to the purchaser by the secretary of social and rehabilitation services when the same is approved by concurrent resolution, appropriation act or other act of the legislature. Before any such sale of real estate, or any interest therein, shall be made, such secretary shall cause the interest in said real estate proposed to be sold to be appraised by three disinterested persons, acquainted with land values in the county where said land is located. Such appraisement shall be in writing and filed with the secretary. Thereafter, the secretary shall solicit sealed bids by public notice inserted in one publication in a newspaper of general circulation in the county where said land is situated, and authorized by law to publish legal notices.

Said sale shall be made to the highest responsible bidder who submits his or her bid within thirty days after publication of such notice, except that in no case shall said real estate be sold for less than three-fourths of the appraised value thereof. The secretary may reject any and all bids, and, in any case, new bids may be called for as in the first instance. When a bid has been accepted, the acceptance thereof shall be made a part of the records of the secretary. Upon acceptance of any such bid, a deed conveying such real estate shall be executed by the secretary, and duly acknowledged by him or her before any officer authorized by law to take acknowledgements. Said deed shall contain a recital of all proceedings in compliance with this act, and said recital shall be prima facie evidence that said proceedings were had in the manner and form recited.
