  • Jefferson County Public Trustee’s Office


     The Jefferson County Public Trustee's office provides services relating to real estate foreclosures and releases of deeds of trust. The Public Trustee also acts as escrow agent for collection of property taxes under a contract for deed or designates an alternate agent within the county.

    Notices to Homeowners or Borrowers:

    If your property goes to foreclosure auction sale and is purchased for more that 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. There is no cost to claim your overbid funds from the Office of the Public Trustee. Call 303-271-8580 or email eforeclosures@jeffco.us

    If a borrower believes that a lender or servicer has violated the requirements for a single point of  contact in Section 38-38-103.1 or the prohibition on dual tracking in Section 38-38-103.2, the borrower may file a complaint with the Colorado Attorney General, the Federal Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB), or both. The filing of a complaint will not stop the foreclosure process.
