Save your buyer clients a few dollars by warning them about a scam that is making the rounds:

Home buyers get an official-looking letter in the mail telling them that it is important to have a certified copy of their property deed. Companies selling these services use high-pressure sales tactics and charge as much as $100, according to a warning by Consumer Reports.

Chances are high that the buyers will get a copy of their deed at closing, but if they don’t, all they have to do is contact their county clerk or registrar’s office. The charge for a copy is less than $10. In some places, they can look at and print a noncertified copy of their deed from the Internet for free.

Let’s get in touch.
