Marion County launches Property Alert Service for residents        

The Marion County Clerk of Court and Comptroller’s Office has launched a Property Alert Service to help residents identify unauthorized or potentially fraudulent activity.

The service, which is free and available to the public, will notify subscribers via email within 24 hours after documents, such as a deed, mortgage, or other land records containing a specific Parcel ID or Party Name, have been recorded into Marion County’s Official Records.

“While this service does not prevent the fraudulent activity from occurring, it can be a helpful resource for property owners to monitor activity and transactions regarding their property,” stated Gregory C. Harrell, Marion County Clerk of Court and Comptroller.

“If subscribers are alerted to an unauthorized transaction and believe it to be fraudulent, they are encouraged to contact law enforcement immediately or seek legal counsel,” added Harrell.

For more information, or to register for the service, visit the Marion County Clerk of Court and Comptroller’s Property Alert Service webpage or call 352-671-5630.
