BROWARD COUNTY PROPERTY APPRAISER’S OFFICE OFFERS RESIDENTS NEW NOTIFICATION SERVICE – “OWNER ALERT”
DAVIE, Fla - The Broward County Property Appraiser’s (BCPA) Office has announced its new notification service “Owner Alert” to help individuals protect their property from scams or fraud.
Criminals can record fraudulent deeds transferring ownership and then try to mortgage, sell, or rent the property – “Owner Alert” helps stop these unlawful acts. This free service is designed to notify individuals when a document is received by the BCPA office changing the ownership of your property.
To subscribe to this service, visit the BCPA website at web.bcpa.net/owneralert to register your property. There is no fee for this service and individuals can unsubscribe at any time.
Ownership records are changed based on deeds recorded with the Broward County Records Division and then provided to the BCPA office. BCPA has no legal authority to determine whether a deed is fraudulent. Once registered, “Owner Alert” will notify those registered if there is a change of ownership to your property and provide you with important information. If you have any questions about the “Owner Alert” notification service, please call 954-357-5579 or email OwnerAlert@bcpa.net
