Land deed scam warning

A homeowner in Johnson County has recently contacted the local Register of Deeds office with concerns regarding a final notification for payment they received concerning their current deed. The mail comes from the Record Retrieval Department in Nashville, Tennessee wherein they recommend all homeowners purchase a copy of their deed. The notification contains land value identification, lot code, document number, property zone, legal property address, use code and property identification and appears to be a legitimate bill.
According to Johnson County’s Register of Deeds office, deeds are a matter of public record and can be purchased for 25 cents a copy. Record Retrieval Department is charging $87.00 for a copy of your deed and property profile. This particular overpriced offer came from Nashville, Tennessee and has been reported in other areas of the country.
