As property title fraud surges, counties throughout Arizona have taken initiatives to help homeowners protect their real estate from fraudulent conveyances.
You may now register your name with the county--for FREE--and when a document is recorded with your name on it, you will be notified via email. This will give you early warning of property fraud being committed in your name.
When a document is recorded into the Official Records of the county in which you have registered, an email will automatically be sent to the provided email address. This service applies only to documents recorded after registration.
We have compiled a list of counties who have released their version of the deed fraud alerting systems:
Alert Monitoring System:
Since the deed fraud alerting systems are relatively new to Arizona, we will be updating this chart as additional information becomes available. If you are aware of information to be added or corrected (such as inaccessible links), please feel free to contact our office and we will revise accordingly.
Other Real Estate Protections to Consider:
While you’re piecing together a plan of action for fraud alerts, now is a great time to ensure your real estate is protected in the event of your death or incapacitation. There are many cost-effective options available for protecting your family and assets, such as creating financial powers of attorney, recording beneficiary deeds (survivorship deeds), or conveying your home into a revocable living trust. Protecting your real estate does not need to be expensive or complicated.
