Va. Attorney General Warns of Deed Solicitation

RICHMOND Attorney General Mark Herring is warning Virginians to beware of companies offering to sell them a copy of the deed to their home.

Herring says homeowners in the state have been receiving official-looking letters, often titled as a "Deed Processing Notice." The letters offer to sell the homeowners a copy of their deed for $83 and include language suggesting a deadline for compliance.

According to Herring, these letters are actually just solicitations and should be treated as such. He says property owners typically receive a copy of their deed at the time of purchase, but if it's lost or needs to be replaced county clerks can often do so at a much lower price.
