The Cole County Recorder of Deeds Office is now offering a notification service called the "Recording Notification System" in an effort to help combat various forms of property fraud.
This Recording Notification System was developed as a result of a nationwide increase in property fraud activities that can result in the illegal transfer of ownership of your property.
This Recording Notification System is a free electronic notification service that alerts a subscriber via email when a document has been recorded with their monitored criteria (e.g. Your name or name of business).
This service will not stop property fraud from being attempted but will provide an early warning system, which will allow property owners to take appropriate measures to protect their property.
