The Denver Public Trustee foreclosure auctions are held online Thursdays at 10 a.m. Register, make deposits and bid here.
Bidders must register and deposit funds here to participate in the Denver Public Trustee auctions. The policies, regulations and deadlines are available on the link.
Not every house will go to auction. Some properties will be continued (postponed) week to week because of bankruptcy, a pending cure or other reason.
The amount of the lender's bid is determined by the lender and its attorney and may include late fees, unpaid interest, attorney fees, and Public Trustee fees. These factors can sometimes cause the amount of the bid to exceed the amount of the initial loan.
The Public Trustee does not research chain of title or whether a given property has liens against it. You may use a title company or search through the public records (not all liens may be found this way).
Please consult a real estate attorney to determine when it is legal to enter a home purchased at auction through the Public Trustee. The Public Trustee does not have the keys to any properties.
Lien holders are required to remit $50 for each Intent to Redeem, a copy of their lien, a list of expenses and receipts for those expenses.
Please see our Release of Deeds of Trust Information Tab.
