Oakland and Macomb Counties Launch Super Index to Detect Real Estate Fraud

The pro-active counties of Oakland and Macomb are the first and only counties in the nation to add a Super Index to their property record searches, making it easier to both prevent and detect real estate fraud.

The Super Index is powered by Google and Xerox and contains up to 12 million pages of optically-scanned property records going back as far as 1964. It allows the user to search records using a homeowner’s name, an address or by name of the notary. The latter is important because some fraudulent deeds have been filed with the cooperation of either a dishonest notary (notary fraud) or one who was duped by the person filing the deed (title fraud).

Some homes are stolen through County Clerks’ offices by people who pay a portion of back taxes on a property with delinquent taxes. The person then places a lien on the property, files a phony deed and then either rents it out or sells it, all without the knowledge of the lawful owner.
