Welcome to the Clerk & Comptroller’s Homeowner Support page.
We understand that the foreclosure process can be overwhelming—from court documents and procedures to the impact it has on you and your family. There are so many homeowner services advertised, some of which are scams. This Homeowner Support page is provided as a starting point for you to get the help you need from trusted sources, whether you are trying to avoid foreclosure or already have a foreclosure case in court.
The Clerk & Comptroller’s office processes all foreclosure-related court documents, notices of action and motions. After a foreclosure judgment, the office conducts the foreclosure auction and issues all post-sale documents.
