The Lake County Recorder's office has been flooded with phone calls asking about an official letter they received in the mail regarding the deed to their home. There are two companies out to scam you and you are urged to be careful, especially if you have recently purchased a home or refinanced your home. These companies see you as vulnerable because you want to be sure all your paperwork is in order regarding your recent transactions.
Please be on the lookout for solicitations from Illinois Deed Providers or Deed Retrieval Services. These companies are contacting Lake County homeowners in an effort to provide you with a certified copy of the deed to your home for an outrageous payment.
There may come a time when you do need to reference the deed to your home. For your protection all requests for copies of deeds should be handled directly through the Recorder's office at (847)377-2575
