Public Service Announcement for Buyers…

I wanted to send this information out because I just had a client close on his home and got this letter in the mail about his deed. I have had other clients get these letters in the mail and ask me about the letter, and likely, I am certain that many or all of my clients get this same notice in the mail, and just don’t alert me to it. Maybe they discard it, hopefully, but my main concern, is maybe they call and order, and actually pay for this deed thinking they are supposed to do so and it is how they get their official recorded deed to the home.

I consider this a scam, maybe it’s not illegal, per say, maybe it is, not sure, but it’s totally unnecessary and a waste of money for the consumer, so I want to point it out, in case you ever buy a home and get this letter, and think you need to pay for this to get your deed. The title company will give you this information anyway, once you close on a home, as part of the closing package and follow up recorded deed, so what this company claims to provide, is totally redundant, and the buyer will get the same information for free. But it does look quite official for the unsuspecting buyer, so I can see where a lot of buyers may actually fall for this.

Here is a copy of the letter, I blacked out my client’s information:

Don't Fall for This!
