Property Fraud Alert System

The Free Property Fraud Alert will help you protect your most valuable asset by providing a phone call or email when any document affecting your property is filed in our office. Make sure you add [email protected] to your email’s safe senders or whitelist.

  • Check your property’s Chain-of-Title to ensure there are not fraudulent documents already there.
  • Property Index Number (PIN) validity is important. If you enter the wrong PIN, you will not receive an alert.
  • If you are registering a condominium, make sure the last 4 digits of the PIN are entered.
  • For email alerts, look for the registration confirmation email in your junk or spam folder.
  • The Fraud Alert is a notice of recordation, not a freeze on title.
  • If you don’t know your PIN, click here to retrieve it.

All fields marked with an asterisk (*) are required.
