Riverside Fights Real Estate Fraud

The Riverside County Assessor-County-Clerk-Recorder is taking a proactive approach to fighting theft of real estate by criminals.

According to Larry Ward of the Recorder’s office, beginning on September 1, notices will be mailed to property owners within 30 days of a deed or other legal instrument being recorded on a property.

Readers of the California Real Estate Fraud Report know that criminals will often steal property by taking title without the true owner’s knowledge or consent and then either “sell” the property or take out loans against it (equity skimming, mortgage fraud).

Although the State requires that after documents are recorded, they be sent to the address on the document, often that is not where the legal owner lives. Riverside will be mailing the notification to the mailing address, which should make it harder to steal properties by manipulating title documents (title fraud).
