Notice to Homeowners: Mail Solicitation Alert

Many home owners are receiving official-looking letters as though they are from the County or a mortgage lender urging them to request an “official” copy of their Grant Deed in order to prevent foreclosure, prove that they own their home, and to be in compliance. The catch: you have to pay as much as $200 for the copies.

THE FACTS

  • You can obtain a copy of your Grant Deed directly from the Los Angeles County Registrar-Recorder/County Clerk. No third party assistance is needed.
  • The County Registrar-Recorder mails the original Grant Deed doc ument to the homeowner after it is recorded. Therefore, you should already have your original Grant Deed.
  • If you have the original Grant Deed in your possession there is no need to purchase a copy. The original is a legally binding document that can be used for your business transactions.

The following are common reasons why you would need a copy of your Grant Deed:

- Lost or misplaced the original recorded Grant Deed;

- Selling or Refinancing the property

- If you need a legal description of your property

Our fee for a certified copy of a document is $6 for the first page and $3 for each additional page per document.

If you believe or suspect that fraudulent activity has occurred on your property:

  • Call the Los Angeles County Department of Consumer Affairs at: (855) 351-0066. You can listen to recorded information on a variety of real estate topics 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Counseling staff is also available to answer your questions during normal business hours.
  • Write the Los Angeles County Department of Consumer Affairs at: Los Angeles County Department of Consumer Affairs
