Solicitation for Copy of Deed

In Clark County, Nevada, (where most of our clients live) it is very easy to obtain a copy of your recorded property deed.  If our office helped you transfer your house into your trust, then you should have received a copy of your deed from us when the recording was complete.  But many clients, including myself, have received "junk mail" soliciting to provide a copy of your deed for a processing fee.  The mail is very official looking and convincingly informs the recipient of the reasons why you need a copy of your deed.

You do not need to fall for this solicitation.  Hopefully you immediatey realized that you already have a copy of your deed.  But if you have misplaced your deed, it is not a trajedy.  You don't have to have your original document to later sell the property.  But the main reason that you can ignore this type of solicitation is that the Clark County Assessor's website allows you to view and print a copy of your deed for freeNo charge!  No processing fees at all.

To access the county records, visit the Assessor's website link here.

I have included a redacted copy of the solicitation letter that many clients have received.

If you have any questions or need assistance locating a copy of your deed, please contact our office.
