ALEXANDER COUNTY, NC (July 20, 2020) — The Alexander County Register of Deeds office has announced that they have implemented Cott Systems’ PropertyCheck in their office to help protect Alexander County residents from potential property and mortgage fraud. The 24/7/365 service allows residents to sign up on the Register of Deeds’ webpage (https://cotthosting.com/ncalexander/sentry/home.aspx) to receive notifications when official documents are recorded on their property. Residents can activate alerts based on their name, property address, or parcel number. There is no cost to participate.
The Alexander County Register of Deeds office works in partnership with Cott Systems to offer this no-cost solution, helping residents feel safer about their properties and online security.
“Records in many states are made available for viewing online, which makes it easier to track recordings on your property, but it does require persistence and, in some cases, costs the taxpayer for access,” said Mark Hellbusch, President of Cott Systems. “This solution eliminates the time associated with searching on your name or property by alerting you via email or text message when a document has been recorded that matches the alerts that you activated. “
Scott H. Hines, Alexander County Register of Deeds, explains, “Local residents have asked me for a means of protecting their property since identity issues are happening with greater frequency. With PropertyCheck, we can now provide a way for people to keep track and safeguard their property; and, the best part is — it’s free!”
Residents can sign up for PropertyCheck alerts at https://cotthosting.com/ncalexander/sentry/home.aspx.
