Deed of Trust Releases

In Colorado, the Public Trustee processes releases of Deeds of Trust upon payoff or re-finance of a property loan. Recording the release of the corresponding Deed of Trustee lien signifies that the lien is satisfied.

The Public Trustee's office highly recommends that all title companies, banks, and other lending institutions file their releases of deeds of trust electronically. For information on electronic filing of releases of deeds of trust with the Public Trustee, please contact either Simplifile or Ingeo (see below).
