Cases of property and mortgage fraud are at an all-time high both locally and nationally. It generally occurs when someone records a fraudulent document, making it look as though they currently own your home or property. Such activity is ILLEGAL and subject to criminal prosecution and/or civil action. As a result, the Montgomery County Recorder’s Office now offers the FREE Fraud Alert Notification (FAN) System to help combat this type of fraudulent activity.

If you own property in Montgomery County, you are encouraged to enroll in the (FAN) System. Once your property is registered, you will be notified by mail or email whenever there is a document recorded in the Recorder’s Office. In most cases, you are aware of the transaction. However, if you are not and you suspect suspicious activity, contact the Recorder’s Office immediately.

REGISTER TODAY to receive notification whenever a document is recorded concerning the registered property.
