A company called Property Transfer Service out of Washington, DC is sending out a “Deed Processing Notice” to new homeowners. This “service” would provide homeowners with a copy of their deed and a property profile for a fee of $83.00. Please be aware – this is a solicitation. New homeowners will receive the original deed after closing at NO CHARGE and the property profile information is data that can be found from public sources such as the registry of deeds or the town clerk’s office. Alert your buyers to disregard the notice they received and save their $83.
