A total of 6,201 foreclosure-related notices went to county households in May, marking a 17 percent increase from the month before and an 84 percent increase compared to May 2007, RealtyTrac reported this morning.

The records are filed when a house reaches a new stage of foreclosure — notice of default, notice of auction and bank repossession.

One record was filed for every 182 households in the county.
