Class Materials: Foreclosure Law in Colorado, 1st Edition. Richard H. Krohn, Esq., Managing Editor
Program Description:
Colorado has a unique foreclosure process because, unlike many states, each county has a designated public trustee who facilitates foreclosures. Public trustee foreclosures make up the vast majority of real property foreclosures in Colorado because they are generally simpler, less expensive, and less time-consuming than the alternative, judicial foreclosure.
Learn about not only Colorado's unique public trustee foreclosure process from start to finish, and the expedited Rule 120 judicial proceeding that together are used in the vast majority of foreclosures in Colorado, but also hear discussion of the alternatives of judicial foreclosure, deeds in lieu of foreclosure and workout agreements. Additional topics include receiverships, the effect of tax liens and bankruptcy on foreclosures and federal regulations that impact foreclosures. Taken together, this program and related written materials will give you a thorough picture of real property foreclosure in Colorado.

Finally, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau mortgage servicing rules impact mortgage servicers, but it is helpful for attorneys that represent servicers and borrowers to be familiar with the CFPB rules.
