Hours of operation: Monday-Thursday 7:30 AM to 5:00 PM Closed on Friday.

The Public Trustee and staff serve as a statutory mediator between property owners and their bank and/or mortgage company during the foreclosure process.  The Public Trustee cannot give legal advice, but insure fair treatment to homeowners facing the stress of foreclosure.  Public Trustees are responsible for processing release of deeds of trust and foreclosures on properties located in Elbert County.

Foreclosure sales are held on Wednesdays at 10:00 AM in the office of the Public Trustee. 
Forms relating to foreclosures may be found under Online Services/Foreclosures/Reports.

Effective January 2020, the Public Trustee's office will be charging $.25 per copy for the combined notice mailings along with the statutes.

Please contact us with any questions you may have at (303) 621-3120.

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. 

If the 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.
