Notice to Owner in Foreclosure:

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.

Help for Homeowners:  Grand Junction Housing Authority

Before a property goes to sale, the foreclosure can be cured by bringing the payments current, if the reason for the default was failure to pay according to the promissory note. A Notice of Intent to Cure must be filed with the Public Trustee's Office (there is no cost to file) at least 15 days before the sale is scheduled. The amount necessary to cure a foreclosure is determined by the lender. The money must be received by the Public Trustee's Office by noon the day before the sale. 

 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.

Public Trustee Mission Statement 

To process and mediate foreclosures on deeds of trust and release liens on behalf of individuals, businesses and government entities, in order to comply with State statutes. 

Public Trustee's Adopted 2018 Budget

The operations of the Public Trustee office are not funded by county tax dollars or state tax dollars.  Instead, the salaries of the Public Trustee and staff, the rent the office pays to the county, and other costs are funded by statutorily-defined fees for specific services provided by the Public Trustee office (see list of statutorily-defined fees).  The Public Trustee continued to operate very efficiently in 2017, and has adopted an efficient budget for 2018.  While using no county tax dollars and while covering its own expenses, the Public Trustee office gave the county over $119,000.00 in 2017.

You may access the adopted 2018 Public Trustee budget here, along with the 2018 Budget Message.  A public hearing on the proposed budget was held December 6, 2017, at 10:00 a.m. in the Public Hearing Room at 544 Rood Ave., Grand Junction, Colorado.  The Public Trustee also provided the proposed budget to the Mesa County Board of County Commissioners and to the Office of the Governor of Colorado for input and comments.
