Property and identity fraud is a nationwide problem. By filing fake deeds, scammers appear to own property, and can then fraudulently rent or sell property, without the knowledge of the true owner. This can seriously impact the true owner's credit rating, or ability to sell or rent the property.

By signing up for our FREE property fraud alerts, you will receive an email alert whenever a document is recorded in Sarasota County's Official Records using your personal or business name. Notifications are sent within 48 hours of the document being recorded, alerting you so you can choose to review documents through public records, or dispute through law enforcement. Just register, receive alerts, and react. It's that simple. 

  • Quick registration.
  • Free online service monitors public records and alerts you when when records are filed in your name.
  • Notifies you within 48 hours of recording into Sarasota County's Official Records.
