Public Trustee

Attention Foreclosed Homeowners: Excess Sale Proceeds - When your home sells for more than was owed to the foreclosing lender, you may be entitled to some or the entire excess amount. However, if there are any liens on your home or if you are behind in your HOA dues, we may have to pay those liens first. Please contact our office to find out if you may be able to receive the funds at 303-660-7417. If you contact us directly, there is no cost to you to claim the excess amount due to you.
