Company Charges for Cheap Deeds

Officials cheap jerseys say not only are there rarely lines to collect copies of deeds, but residents can even get copies of the documents online or in the mail.

Wisconsin residents are receiving letters from a company called Local Records Office. The flyer looks like a bill, but is really a solicitation for a service that provides copies of property deed for $89. The same document is available from Wisconsin counties for just a dollar or two per page.

NBC 15 called the service. An operator explained the markup because “some people don’t really like to stand in line for hours so that’s why we offer the service.”

Earlier this summer the state issued the company a warning. The Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection claims the mailings are deceptive, and that the disclaimer is too small and inconspicuous.
