Grant Deed Scams

If you’ve received an official looking letter, as though it is from County or a mortgage lender, urging you to request an official copy of your Grant Deed in order to prevent foreclosure and wanting to charge upwards of hundreds of dollars, don’t be fooled.

You can obtain a copy of your Grant Deed directly from your County Recorder/County Clerk. Usually, the county mails you a copy as soon as you purchase your home therefor you should already have one. If you do not, a copy can be obtained from:

San Diego Co. Assessor/Recorder/Clerk
1600 Pacific Highway #103
San Diego, Ca 92101
619.236.3771
www.sdarcc.com

Charges range depending on how many pages your deed is but usually do not exceed $20.

May Landlords Require Insurance for Their Tenants?

Your Landlord can legally require you to provide proof of renters’ insurance as a condition of the lease.  A landlord may specify a minimum amount of coverage and require that both the property manager and legal owner of the property be added to your policy as an additional insured.
