The Notice of Recorded Document Program helps combat real estate fraud and limit its harm by notifying property owners whenever a deed, mortgage, or related document for their property is recorded.
You can sign up to get email, text, or mail notifications. If you receive a notification and suspect fraud, you should contact the Sheriff’s Office immediately.
It’s free to register, but text message rates may apply, so you should check with your cell phone provider.
You can register for the program if you are a:
- Property owner or the owner's agent (child, spouse, or domestic partner of owner if a designee)
- Managing agent
- Property owner's attorney
- Lien holder
- Executor or administrator of the estate of the owner or lien holder
