Be on alert for “official-looking” notices that ask homeowners to fork over $167 to obtain a copy of their property’s grant deed, warns the city of West Hollywood. The notices indicate grant deeds are necessary to prevent foreclosure and provide proof of ownership. Most homeowners get a grant deed when they buy their home, and another copy can be purchased at the county clerk's office for a nominal cost, so it's clearly bogus. [City of West Hollywood]
