Scam Alert

 

Landowners are being targeted once again in the state of Indiana.  Please be aware of an agency that is sending out letters stating the importance of obtaining a copy of your deed.  This agency has also started calling landowners warning them of the urgency in obtaining their deed.  The agency states that it is a long and expensive process to obtain a copy of the deed and offers to do the work for the landowner at a cost of $80-$90.

 

Having a copy of your deed is always a good idea, but it is not an urgent matter under most circumstances.  Obtaining a copy of your deed is typically a quick process and the cost of a deed statewide is $1/page (most deeds are only 1-3 pages).  Deeds can be obtained in person at the LaGrange County Recorder’s Office or by emailing Jennifer McBride, LaGrange County Recorder, at This email address is being protected from spambots.
