I wrote an article on this same topic some time ago, but a client has received new, slightly different letters recently, so I am writing it again. Some of the names and descriptions have changed, but the concept is the same.
We transferred a client’s property into trust, and she received a letter from “Property Site.” Ignore the names of the senders, because the letter from a few years ago had a completely different name.
The letter recites data regarding property that the owner owns. The letter contains two pages of ridiculous and official-sounding description to explain why everyone should have a copy of the deed to their property. The notice offers to provide a copy of the deed for in excess of $90. The letter contains disclaimers, which are as misleading as the rest of the letter, to indicate that they are not affiliated with any government agency.
This “service” is unnecessary, for a variety of reasons.
All these companies do is obtain the copy from the clerk, which anybody could obtain directly. There is no need to heed the offer contained in this letter.
