I'm concerned about title fraud or deed theft.

The Assessor’s Office transfers ownership by publicly recorded documents. These documents are recorded for public record at the Jefferson County Clerk & Recorder’s Office. They can be reached at the Jefferson County Clerk and Recorder website or at 303-271-8121. The Assessor’s Office does not monitor loans for mortgages or refinancing.

The Assessor’s Office does a thorough review AFTER the document is recorded. The document is checked for the signature, notary acknowledgement and the correct legal description before the title is changed.

If you think you may be a victim of identity theft please contact the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office at 303-271-0211 or report a crime online.

If you would like to take additional steps to protect yourself, please contact an attorney or outside company that provides identity theft services. The Jefferson County Assessor’s Office does not provide these services, nor do we provide any identity reports to outside companies.
