Beware of property scams

Beware of property scams!

The Land Registry is encouraging all property owners to be vigilant for scams which could affect their properties.

You are more at risk if:

  • your identity’s been stolen
  • you rent out your property
  • you live overseas
  • the property is empty
  • the property is not mortgaged
  • the property is not registered at Land Registry


Read the Land Registry’s guidance for more information on Property Fraud at www.gov.uk/propertyfraud or contact Hilary Coles or Melanie Holder on 01643 707777 or by e-mail hilary.coles@maitlandwalker.com or melanie.holder@maitlandwalker.com.
