What is Property Fraud?

Property fraud occurs when scammers record fake property deeds, making it appear as if they own the property when they actually have no legal right to it. These scammers then apply for loans using the property as collateral, trick people into giving them money to rent the property, or try to sell the property.

Our Property Fraud Alert Program is a free service to help our county residents get notice when deeds are filed in their name. Please protect your property rights from fraud by signing up to monitor the documents being recorded in the Register of Deeds Office. Call our office at 414-278-4005 for more information.

Termination of Decedent’s Interest

The legislature passed and Governor Tony Evers signed Act 127 earlier this week with a publication date of March 4, 2020. This law relates to obtaining evidence of the termination of certain property of a decedent. This law requires the person providing the termination of the decedent’s property interest to verify, under oath, the correctness of the information provided to the Register of Deeds.

This new law not only removes the requirement to provide a certified death certificate but also allows the termination of decedent’s interest (HT-110) to be electronically recorded.

The termination of decedent’s interest form and updated instructions are on the Wisconsin Register of Deeds website at wrdaonline.org.

If anyone has any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to our office. Thank you.
