Register of Deeds e-mail alert system allows early detection of fraud

Macomb County, MI
Program Year: 2012

The register of deeds office offers a service to property owners allowing them to sign up for an e-mail or telephone alert whenever any transactions take place regarding the property they specify when signing up. This allows property owners to detect potential fraud immediately because it alerts them when something is filed that they are not aware of. It also allows family members to monitor real estate owned by elderly parents or grandparents to reduce the risk of fraud against the elderly.
