Frequent travellers

Vacant properties

Unfinanced properties

Properties with significant equity

Victims of identity theft

We are the only service focused on preventing real estate fraud

Even following all the existing guidance on how to protect yourself leaves you exposed. While title insurance can restore your title or cover financial losses, it is a long and stressful process to do so. The Lighthouse Registry Property Alert Service is the only service that can actually help prevent real estate fraud before it happens. 

How it works

Register and forget about it - we do the work to keep you notified of any potential transactions related to your property

Sign up with
Lighthouse Registry

Set up a virtual meeting with one of our experts to review the service in detail and prepare your paperwork.  There is a one time registration fee.

Be notified if your property is to be transferred or financed

We notify you and your "trusted contacts"of any proposed transactions related to your property and put in place controls around any closings.  There is an annual monitoring fee for this service.

Intervene only when you
need to

You can take steps to block the proposed transaction if it is fraudulent or otherwise unauthorized. If it is legitimate, nothing needs to be done. 

* The Property Alert Service is not insurance.  It is a compliment to title insurance but does not replace title insurance.  Homeowners should consult a lawyer to discuss their insurance coverage and determine what insurance products may be suitable for them to ensure that they are covered in the event of real estate fraud.   

Book your virtual
registration session

It takes less than 15 minutes!
