Foreclosure, by definition, is the forced sale
of a piece of property to repay a debt.
Foreclosure is conducted by the Office of the Public Trustee on Deeds of Trust containing a power of sale. The procedure for conducting the foreclosure is set by the Colorado State Statues and must be followed precisely.
The Deed of Trust is an agreement between three parties:
- The Grantor (owner)
- The Public Trustee (who has the power of sale)
- The Beneficiary (lender)

Please use due diligence to determine any and all laws that may be applicable to any actions you may be taking.
NOTE: How a foreclosure is processed is affected by when the Notice of Election and Demand was recorded by the Jefferson County Clerk & Recorder to start the foreclosure action. To find out that information visit our Foreclosure Search and under "Basics" it is listed as "E & D" date. Click here for: Frequently Asked Questions
