Property alert service

The Property Registration Authority has set up a property alert service to let property owners monitor their registered properties for fraudulent activity. Property fraud could involve someone pretending to be you, and trying to sell or mortgage your property without you knowing.

If you sign up to the property alert service, you will get an email or text if someone lodges an application relating to your property with the PRA. If the activity is fraudulent you can take action if necessary. The property must be registered with the Land Registry but you do not have to be the owner of the property.
