The Document Notice Letter


The City of Philadelphia, Records Department, is implementing a Document Notice Program. Each time a deed or mortgage is recorded in the Records Department, the current owner of record will be informed of the transaction. A letter will be mailed to the owner providing details of the transaction. The objective of the program is to provide notice to property ownders in the event that the transaction is a fraudulent one. Owners will then be able to take corrective action. A sample notice letter follows.
