Madison County Probate Court launches online tool for property owners

HUNTSVILLE – The Probate Court of Madison County has launched an online tool to help serve, protect, and inform real property owners.

A significant increase of fraudulent real estate transactions in surrounding states and isolated cases in North Alabama has caused valid concern, the court said in a news release. This activity most commonly involves an improperly conveyed deed on an unoccupied or seasonal home and on unimproved or vacant land.

By working in the legal, real estate, and banking community, the Probate Court and tax assessor have developed a free notification system for property owners in Madison County.

According to the news release, the Property Notification System is designed to alert a real property owner via email if a deed is filed in the Madison County Probate Office that changes the listed owner’s name in Probate Court and tax assessor records.

“This is just one more way the Probate Court has improved the way we serve and protect the residents of Madison County” said Judge Frank Barger. “Our team takes great pride in being responsive to the needs of those we serve and constantly improving to meet demands of the environment in which we conduct business.”

The office cited a strong partnership and good working relationship with Tax Assessor Cliff Mann on the project.
