Homebuyer Alert: The 'Homestead Recording Service'

Don’t fall for the Homestead Recording Service letter you may receive if you purchased a home in 2015. The form appears official, but it is a solicitation. Homeowners who receive it are instructed to fill out the form and send $35. Do NOT do this.

Buried in the fine print is a disclaimer. It states the form is optional and that the owner is not required to use the form or service.

Save your $35. You can easily file the form yourself.

Here are the FACTS:

  1. The Homestead Recording Service (or any other impersonating service) is not a government agency. It is not associated with any taxing authority.
  2. There is NO charge to file a homestead exemption on your home.
  3. Filing a homestead exemption with your appraisal district is easy. Forms are available online and the entire process takes about five minutes.

If you purchased your home recently, read each piece of mail carefully. Call me if you ever have questions. If you receive a letter that appears to have come from a taxing authority, contact your appraisal district to verify the claim.

If you need help, I’m always here for you. Email or call me anytime: (512) 694-9769.
