Effective Jan. 1, 2014, the fee for posting a Notice of Sale is $13.00 if posted by the Trustee, or $15.00 if posted by the Clerk's Office. Foreclosure Sale Notices must be posted at least 21 days prior to the sale. The location for posting Notices of Sale is the bulletin board inside the South basement doors of the Johnson County Historic Courthouse facing Chambers Street.
The Clerk's office does not conduct or participate in the Foreclosure Sale and has no involvement in the foreclosure process other than maintaining public records which are filed by interested parties. Notices of Sale are generally posted by the appointed Trustee or Substitute Trustee who conduct the Foreclosure Sale for that property. All questions or inquiries regarding the status of a property to be sold at foreclosure should be directed to the current Trustee and/or Attorney listed on the Notice of Sale.
