The Adair county recorders office says county residents are receiving letters from a “property transfer service company” that is offering availability of property deeds for a price of around $80.00. That’s money you don’t have to pay. Pat Shouse at the Recorders Office says the same service is provided at the office for much less money. What the letter offers is a duplicate service, meaning you’ll be out the $80 for essentially nothing. That’s because state law requires deeds be transferred through the local recorders office anyway. If you receive one of these letters, please call the Recorder’s Office. The number is 665-3890.
