Notice to an Owner in Foreclosure:
If your property goes to foreclosure auction sale and is purchased for more than the total owed to the lender and to all other lien holders, please contact the public trustee's office after the sale because you may have funds due to you.
House Bill Number 48 known as “AN ACT” was approved by the Colorado General Assembly on March 5, 1894. The “ACT” established the office of the Public Trustee in each county of the State of Colorado which provides a system of checks and balances between the borrower and the lender. All Deeds of Trust given to secure indebtedness on real estate shall name the Public Trustee as trustee who acts as an intermediary between the borrower and lender.
Unique among the fifty states in its public trustee/lender relationship, Colorado’s foreclosure statutes, as interpreted by the courts, have provided the lienor(s) a process to exercise its rights and remedies, while affording the borrower/owners of the property a fair opportunity to protect his interest in the property.
Ample cure rights are afforded the owner of the property being foreclosed and redemption rights to junior
lien holder(s) having a recorded interest in the property being foreclosed. To provide a foreclosing party certainty in its remedies - requirements and deadlines must be met by all parties or the owner’s and junior lienor’s rights will be extinguished.
