The breakdown of the type of foreclosure actions for 2011 is as follows. There have been 168 Notice of Election and Demands which is the first step in the foreclosure process. This starts the foreclosure timeline and is not yet a sale of the property. There has been 1 Certificate of Purchase action which is where the Public Trustee offers the property at public auction. Any purchaser must pay more than the debt itself owed to the lien holder filing the foreclosure action plus any fees. The purchaser has the duty to research whether there are any other outstanding liens on the property. There have been 94 Public Trustee's Deeds in 2011. This is the stage of the process where the holder of the Certificate of Purchase obtains ownership of the entity.
