Following the auction, the successful bidder is responsible for delivering final payments to the Public Trustee’s office by wire transfer, cash, or certified funds (certified check, cashier’s check, or teller’s check) in a timely manner to allow for the receipt of funds and the update of the bidder’s account balance to complete the purchase by 5:00 p.m. (Mountain Time) the day of the auction. All funds must be drawn from a US Financial institution and no foreign currency is accepted. Large cash payments will be reported to the IRS and we require the completion of all necessary IRS forms (available in our office).

Once the successful bidder has submitted the funds, the Public Trustee’s office will issue an Original Certificate of Purchase to be recorded in the Clerk and Recorder's office.
Post Sale
Once the sale has concluded, the redemption notice period begins. Under Colorado statute, junior lienholders have the right to redeem a senior lien if they have an interest in the property. Junior lienholders interested in redeeming a foreclosed lien can file a Notice of Intent to Redeem with the Public Trustee within eight business days of the sale. The written intent to redeem must be submitted to the Public Trustee’s office along with the original recorded lien. The fee for lienholders to file an Intent to Redeem is $50. If no Intent to Redeem is filed, the Certificate of Purchase holder may request a deed on the ninth business day after the sale. If our office receives an Intent to Redeem, the Redemption Period will begin 15 business days from the date of the sale. Each junior lienholder filing an Intent to Redeem will have 5 business days, in the order of their lien, to submit funds to redeem. For example, the filing lienholder in the first position would have from business day 15 through noon on business day 19 to submit funds. A filing lienholder in second position would have business day 20 through noon on business day 24.
