  • Bidding at the Foreclosure Sale


    Sale Policy as of January 1, 2014

    A foreclosing lender who intends to take a property to sale must, by law, submit a written bid, detailing what is due and owing to them, to the Public Trustee’s office by noon two days before the sale.

    To find the lender's minimum bid, visit our Foreclosure Property Search View exit disclaimer policy page for links to 3rd party websites application or stop by the Public Trustee's office in person.

    If there is no bid entered for that week's sale, you can determine the status of a particular foreclosure by checking under “Basics,” within the Foreclosure Property Search application, for the next scheduled sale date Wednesday afternoon at the search site above.

    • Verifiable wire transfer - for the $10 wire fee - to the Public Trustee's account the day before the sale. If you are the unsuccessful bidder, we will issue a refund or wire the funds back to you for the $15 wire fee.
