    New Policy regarding HOA liens


    CRS 38-38-306 (2) states that a person claiming a right to a statutory lien has the right to redeem despite the fact that the lien has not been reduced to a judgment under the condition that if another lien claimant redeems, the redemption amount attributable to the statutory lien will be held in escrow until such time as a final judgment has been entered. Effective immediately, it shall be the policy of the Jefferson County Public Trustee to hold such monies in our account until such time as a final judgment has been entered.
    There is no similar requirement in CRS 38-38-111(2) for a statutory lien claimant to reduce their lien to a judgment in order to participate in disbursement of overbid funds.
