If you would like to set up an account to file foreclosures electronically, please contact Tech Services at 1-425-712-8899 to obtain information on purchasing software compatible with the Public Trustee database to file electronically.
If you intend to file a new foreclosure via e-mail, the following guidelines must be followed.
- All new foreclosures should be e-mailed to: email@example.com
- All documents must be scanned as a TIFF file at a resolution of 200 DPI. If you use a compression method, it must be CCITT.
- If the legal description of the property is attached to the Notice of Election and Demand as an exhibit, it must be scanned as a second page to the Notice of Election and Demand and it must be scanned as a stand-alone document.
- When filing a foreclosure, a deposit of $650.00 is required. This can be sent via postal mail or you may use ACH. If you do not have an ACH account with us and would like to use ACH, please contact Lisa Sandoval in the Public Trustee office by e-mail or call her at 311 (720-865-8400 outside of Denver) and ask to be transferred to her extension.
We strongly recommend that if you are filing foreclosures via e-mail, you enable the "read receipt" feature on your e-mail program. Due to the large volume of foreclosures that we process daily, you will not receive manual confirmation of receipt from the Denver Public Trustee.
If you are filing your foreclosure via e-mail, you will be charged for postage and copies for each mailing. Accordingly, you do not need to send us envelopes.
All foreclosures filed via e-mail will be set up within ten days of receipt. Please do not send a request multiple times as this will cause the same file to be set up multiple times. If you need additional information, please contact Sindee Wagner by e-mail or by phone (call 311, or 720-865-8400 outside of Denver, and ask to be transferred).
The third option for filing a new foreclosure is with paper documents. This can be done in person, by courier, or via postal mail. If you are filing a foreclosure by sending paper documents, include a self-addressed, stamped envelope to receive these documents back from our office.
Your documents will be scanned into our database and the originals will be sent back to you. If you do not include a self-addressed, stamped envelope, your documents will still be sent back to you and you will be charged for postage and packaging.
