Foreclosures

*The Foreclosure Pre-Sale List is subject to change without notice. The information shown is preliminary information given to the Public Trustee and can change (be withdrawn or continued) at any time up to the time of the Foreclosure Auction.

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. There is no reason to contract with a 3rd party to obtain the funds you are owed and it costs you nothing to claim your overbid funds. Call 970.453.3440, or email PublicTrustee@summitcountyco.gov
