The Morris County Clerk's Property Alert Service notifies users when documents are filed for a specified property or party name, ultimately helping users identify unauthorized or fraudulent activity.
Alerts are sent by email when a document is recorded with data that matches the property legal description (municipality, block, and lot) or party name specified by the subscriber.
This service is the first step in protecting your property. Unfortunately, property and mortgage fraud is a fast growing crime in our country. Scammers record fraudulent documents - like fake deeds - or record fake liens - against property owners. In some cases, fraud on real property is not discovered for years. To address these concerns, and protect one of your most important assets, our office offers this FREE service to notify you immediately via email whenever a document with your name is recorded in the County Clerk's Office.
