Many SaddleBrooke homeowners have heard or seen advertising for “home title lock” policies which proport to protect your home from being fraudulently conveyed to an unscrupulous 3rd party -potentially costing you thousands in equity and loss of your home. The cost of such policies run as high as $250 per year!
The truth is’ this fraud is being tried because our legal system of recording documents allows anyone to file Quit Claims or other documents on your property. It is up to the you, the property owner, to protect your interests.
At the SaddleBrooke Public Affairs’ committee meeting this week, the issue of this scam was raised. Fortunately, Pinal County has a free service which you can use. Register your email with the address for your home and if any person records anything on your property you will get an email notification.
Some recordings may be legitimate for example liens from service providers such remodeler, chiropractors, etc. but this will keep people informed of non-consensual liens.
they can also register up to five deviations of your name, Doug, Douglas, etc.
Here is the link to sign up for free property notifications on the Recorder’s website:
