NH Property owners, be aware: It has been reported that property owners have been targeted in a recent mail scam where the sender offers to provide copies of public documents such as deeds for as much as $86.00. (A copy of a deed is available to the public for as little as $1.00 per page at the Registry of Deeds!)
Attorney General Michael A. Delaney issued the following consumer alert to all New Hampshire property owners:
“Consumers should be aware of mailings being sent to property owners throughout the state from companies using the names “Secured Document Services” and “Deed Retrieval Services.””
As posted by the Attorney General’s Consumer Alert, “The mailings appear to be official government notices recommending, “that all United States [or New Hampshire] homeowners obtain a copy of their current grant deed” and further indicate that, for a fee of $86.00 or $87.00, these companies will provide the property owner with a copy of their Grant Deed and a Property Profile.”
Don’t buy it!
