Thank you for your interest in the Cape May County Clerk's Office Property Alert Service.
This service is the first step in protecting your property. Unfortunately, property and mortgage fraud is a fast growing crime in our country. Scammers record fraudulent documents - like fake deeds - or record fake liens - against property owners. In some cases, fraud on real property is not discovered for years. To address these concerns, and protect one of your most important assets, our office offers this FREE service to notify you immediately via email whenever a document with your name is recorded in the County Clerk's Office.
Please sign up today and protect your property from fraud. It's quick, easy and free. Simply follow the steps below and you will automatically be notified electronically when a document is recorded with your name.
