Clerk Warns of Deed Exorbitant Overcharge

ScamAlert

Clerk Angela Vick would like to warn the citizens of Citrus County of a potential deed copy exorbitant overcharge. In January, a local citizen brought to our attention a mail solicitation received from a company offering to provide a property profile and a copy of the deed recorded in the homeowner’s name. This mailing is circulating again, and we would like to thank our concerned citizens for bringing it to our attention. Companies offering these services are charging exorbitant fees. The Clerk’s office does not request payment for recorded property deeds via mail. Citizens may acquire certified copies of deeds for $1.00 per page and $2.00 for the certification; a cost significantly less than the fees these companies are advertising. Uncertified copies of deeds are also available for $1.00 per page. Please note: online orders do have a 7% charge on credit card usage, charged by our vendor. You can also print out a non-certified copy for free on our website www.citrusclerk.org. Stay alert to all suspicious mailings, phone calls and emails. The Clerk’s office is available to respond to questions regarding property deeds and the cost of obtaining a copy. Please feel free to contact the Official Records Department in our office at (352) 341-6424 or stop by the Clerk Annex, located at 120 N. Montgomery Avenue, Inverness, between the hours of 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday, excluding holidays.
