ROD Warns Of Costly Records

The Marinette County Register of Deeds is promoting a new state law.  Act 247 was signed into law last week.  The legislation requires non-government agencies to specify there is no requirement to purchase a public record or deed from them, list what government agency does provide that record, and include the pricing of that government agency. Over the past few years, there has been a significant increase in deed processing schemes that target new and existing homeowners. Homeowners receive official looking notices recommending they obtain a deed and property profile to their home in order to confirm their ownership in the property for a fee that is anywhere between $60 to $90.  Marinette County Register of Deeds Renee Miller reminds these same records are available immediately at her office at only a fraction of the cost.
