Protecting your home from property fraud

Fraudsters can and do target properties for fraud, effectively ‘stealing’ your home by taking the legal title to it.  This is most commonly done by pretending to be you and either selling or mortgaging your property without your knowledge.

For information on how you can protect your property from fraud, please visit www.landregistry.gov.uk/public/property-fraud
