Sunshine for a cloudy day

We’ve been working on getting better access to records of Denton County foreclosures in the new year.

A law passed by the Texas Legislature that went into effect last year requires county clerks to report residential foreclosures by zip code to the Texas Department of Housing and Community Affairs so that they, in turn, are able to make quarterly reports to the legislature.

The request turned out to be a bit trickier to fulfill than we thought going in, but we are on our way to gathering the information we need for a good summary of what happened in 2012 and you can watch for a story from our business reporters soon.

Moreover, our request spurred a new website from the Denton County Clerk. Go here to see the latest information on local foreclosures.
