Beaufort County’s Register of Deeds launched a free service that gives property owners e-mail alerts whenever a document is recorded with the owner’s name or property ID.
The public can sign up by visiting the Beaufort County Register of Deeds website and following the links to register. More than 70,000 documents are recorded annually at the Register of Deeds office.
“While this service cannot prevent fraud, it is important to be notified early that someone may be trying to steal your property without your knowledge,” said Dale Butts, register of deeds.
