Hi, my name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you, please give me a moment to review and possibly research answers to your question.
No sorry, I was unexpectedly pulled away.
1. You can pay the taxes on the property even though at this moment you are not the titleholder.
2. In Colorado, you have a Public Trustee that carries out the foreclosure. There are a number of things you need to do and whether or not you can accomplish them all on your own or whether you need an attorney will depend on if you can figure it out. I have found the Public Trustee website for your county and there is contact information for them, so not sure how helpful they are, but you should certainly review the information and contact them and see if it's something you can accomplish without a lawyer.
Does that answer your question?
Well sorry about that, you are right that you did mention the public trustee, I didn't pick that out at first. I would have been happy to help you obtain the form if you had pointed out my oversight but I am glad you found the form. Let me know if you have any other related questions then.
Also, by the stranger paying the taxes, do you mean perhaps that the taxes were paid for by a purchaser at a tax lien sale? If so, there will be a straightforward redemption proceeding for that.
