Many of you have already added property fraud advice to your websites and given our Protect your property from fraud leaflets to your clients. If you’d like to order more leaflets free of charge, email email@example.com, stating how many leaflets you’d like and the address or DX number to send them to.
Since 2009, HM Land Registry has prevented 254 fraudulent applications being registered, representing properties valued in excess of £117 million. No system can be completely fraud-proof, but by working together we can help more people understand what they can do to protect themselves.
