MILFORD — The city is offering a free tool to help property owners protect one of their most valuable assets.

With the free online fraud alerts program, Milford property owners can sign up to receive alerts whenever a document, such as a deed, mortgage or lien, is recorded in their name. The document can be viewed online or at the Milford City Clerk’s Office.

“We’ve been getting an increasing number of calls from owners concerned about fraudulent transfers or liens filed without notification,” said City Clerk Karen Fortunati. “This alert system will provide peace of mind. It’s easy — all you need to do is register your name and an email address. If a document is recorded in our office, you will get a notification and can call us for more information.”

Call the Milford City Clerk’s Office at 203-783-3210 for more information. People can find the registration form at https://searchiqs.com/fraudalert/?CC=CTMILF
