Sales: Foreclosure and Lien Lists

The Hennepin County Sheriff’s Office does not provide a list of sales.

Foreclosure sales are advertised in legal newspapers, such as the Finance and Commerce Newspaper and  the Sun Newspaper. To qualify as a legal newspaper, the publication must have a paid subscription of over 500 subscribers. Sales are listed in the real estate section.

If the Sheriff’s Office is conducting a sale pursuant to Judgment and Decree or as part of an Execution action, the sale notice will be posted in three public display cases located:

  • Minneapolis City Hall - Main Level outside Room 30.
  • Minneapolis City Hall - Second Floor near the elevators.
  • Hennepin County Government Center – Public Service Level (PSL).

(See on the right under "Contact").

Mechanic’s Lien sales, which the Sheriff’s Office may conduct as an auctioneer, generally are published in the same mentioned papers. Notices of these sales are also displayed in the three public display cases mentioned.
