Owner Alert Frequently Asked Questions





  Owner Alert is a FREE service designed to help you protect your property from scams or fraud by notifying you if a document is received by the Broward County Property Appraiser’s Office changing the ownership of your property.

 Once registered for Owner Alert, BCPA will notify you if there has been a change of ownership to the property. Ownership records are changed based on deeds recorded with the Broward County Records Division and then provided to our office. If there has been a change of ownership, you will receive an email notification from our office with the link to the recorded document for you to review. If you authorized this change, you do not need to do anything additional. If you did not initiate the change of ownership and suspect you are a victim of fraud, you should contact the law enforcement agency for the city where the property is located.

 Property fraud is a very serious issue. Criminals can record fraudulent deeds transferring ownership and then try to mortgage, sell, or rent the property. Owner Alert helps stop these unlawful acts by notifying you of any change of ownership on your registered property.
