PRA launches new, free, online Property Alert Service

The PRA is delighted to announce the launch of our new Property Alert Service.

Property is usually the most valuable asset people own.  It can be sold and mortgaged to raise money and can therefore be an attractive target for fraudsters.  The PRA have introduced the Property Alert Service in order to help deter and detect potential property fraud.

The Property Alert Service is a new, free, online service available to the public that will allow property owners to monitor registered properties for possible fraudulent activity. Users of the service will receive email and/or text alerts when an application has been lodged with the PRA to update the Land Register.

While the new alert service will not prevent fraud from happening, it provides an early warning system that will allow owners to take appropriate action should they believe fraudulent activity has happened with their property.

To register for the Property Alert Service and for further information:

  1. Go to landdirect.ie
  2. Select the ‘Proceed as Guest’ option
  3. Click on Property Alerts in the menu
  4. Follow the instructions

The Property Alert Service Support Team can be contacted at 0761 001610 (Monday to Friday, 9am to 5pm) or by email to: propertyalerts@prai.ie
