Our new Property Alert service is designed to help members of the public protect themselves against property fraud.

The online property monitoring service has been running as a ‘beta’ service since the beginning of January and following excellent feedback will now go live to everyone on Tuesday 4 March.

The free service is aimed at anyone who feels that a registered property could be at risk from fraud.

People who sign up will be sent email alerts each time an official search or application is received against one of up to three monitored properties, allowing them to take action if necessary.

We would encourage you to recommend the service to your clients as a further counter-fraud measure they can take.

Although Property Alert is intended to be predominately an online service, Assisted Digital support will also be provided for anyone unable to access the service online.
