We are proud to announce that the Houghton County Register of Deeds’ Office has successfully launched Property Fraud Alert! The straightforward program allows constituents to sign up online and receive alerts by email or phone whenever a document listing their name as a party is recorded in your land records office. Over 300,000 property owners have taken action nationwide and signed up for this valuable program.



“We’ve been promoting Property Fraud Alert through numerous mediums; local radio, newspaper and brightly colored flyers throughout the Houghton County Courthouse. An article published in the Houghton Gazette really helped push awareness further, allowing more people to understand what the crime is and why it’s important to protect yourself and in your best interest to sign up for the service. I’m very happy to be the provider of such a powerful service to my county.” – Jennifer Lorenz, Houghton County Clerk/Register of Deeds
