Notices of Substitute Trustee Sales (Foreclosure Notices)
Texas is a non-judicial foreclosure state. Default is defined in the Deed of Trust (Mortgage) and/or Promissory Note. When a debt is defaulted a Substitute Trustee's sale will take place in the manner authorized by the Deed of Trust/Promissory Note.
These documents are neither County Clerk records, nor permanent records. Each month's file is destroyed the day after the sale. For these reasons, the postings are neither indexed nor searchable at this time. The Clerk's office apologizes for any inconvenience you may experience.
