Property Fraud Alert

Property Fraud Alert


The Columbia County Register of Deeds office is pleased to announce that it is providing a FREE on-line service that allows Columbia County citizens the ability to have their name monitored in order to track possible fraudulent activity.  Citizens will be notified only when the name they have submitted to Property Fraud Alert is found on a document recorded in the Register of Deeds Office.

Protecting consumer’s information and real estate property is a priority for the Register of Deeds. According to the FBI, property and mortgage fraud is the fastest growing white-collar crime. While Property Fraud Alert will not prevent fraud from happening, it will provide an early warning system that will allow our citizens to take appropriate actions should they deem possible fraudulent activity has occurred with their property.

We are committed to bringing the best service possible to our citizens and are excited about the value this offering could bring.  If you are interested in enrolling in this FREE service, you can sign-up instantly by visiting the website below:

When submitting your name, using fewer letters in your first name will allow you to receive a more complete notification if something is recorded. If there are different versions of your name, you can sign them up as well. Property Fraud is also available for business names.
