County Clerk Warns About Deed Scam
ELIZABETH – County Clerk Joanne Rajoppi has warned property owners in the County of Union to beware of people who offer to sell them a certified copy of the deed to their property. Scam artists solicit property owners in the county, offering to sell them a copy of their deed for as much as $80. The county clerk’s office charges less than $20 for a certified copy; state law mandates the price. Ms. Rajoppi said there is no need to go through a middleman who charges an exorbitant fee for this service. Property owners are advised to be wary of people purporting to sell “actual” deeds. Only the county clerk’s office has the real deeds to respective properties. The county clerk is responsible for recording, filing and preserving all property transactions occurring within the county. She maintains copies of all documents since 1857 on file in the Record Room, which is open to the public. To find out more, call the Union County Clerk’s Office at (908) 527-4787, or visit ucnj.org. The County Clerk’s Office is located in the courthouse at 2 Broad Street in Elizabeth.
