Recorder Alert System Looks to Prevent Property Fraud

The Chisago County Recorder's Office has a program that aims to give residents a way to avoid falling victim to fraud. A person could forge signatures of homeowners on a new deed and mortgage and walk out with thousands of dollars the same day. These issues do not occur readily; however, mortgage and real estate fraud does occur in our society. Even though no recent fraud has been brought to our attention here in Chisago County, there is always the possibility. Customers should take a proactive approach to monitoring their investments, and a home is often the largest investment one will make in their lifetime. This is a great opportunity for citizens of Chisago County and everyone should take advantage of this free service to protect their most valuable assets.

How it works

The Land Notification system gives you the ability to monitor personal names or business names for real estate activity. You can create one or more alerts that are triggered when real estate records are recorded with the Chisago County Recorder's Office for names identified in the alert. When an alert is triggered, an email will be sent to the email address you provided in the alert. The email will contain more information about the activity and will include the Recorder's Office contact information. Once an alert is created, it will search from that day forward. Please keep in mind, when creating alerts, common names, such as "John Smith" may produce many results.

This is a FREE service!
