The Treasurer is now the Public Trustee

Legislation passed in 2019 names the County Treasurer as the Public Trustee for Boulder County. All work of the Public Trustee’s office has moved into our offices at the Old County Courthouse in downtown Boulder.

If you have any questions, you can contact our office at 303-441-3520, or by email at eforeclosures@bouldercounty.org (foreclosure-related questions) or trustee@bouldercounty.org (general questions).

What does the Public Trustee do?

Real estate loans in Colorado are typically secured with a deed of trust. The Public Trustee is listed on the deed and serves as a neutral third party until the loan is paid in full. When the loan is paid, the Public Trustee releases the deed of trust, conveying ownership of the property to borrower. If the borrower defaults on a provision of the deed of trust, the lender may choose to foreclose. The Public Trustee manages the foreclosure process, including protecting the rights of both the borrower and the lender, noticing the sale, holding the sale, processing redemptions, and issuing deeds to sale purchasers.
