State’s clerks of court roll out program to halt stealing land through legal maneuvering

The Georgia Superior Court Clerks’ Cooperative Authority (GSCCCA), in conjunction with the Superior Court Clerks of Georgia, proudly announces a free, consumer-friendly process that notifies property owners any time filings are made related to their registered property! F.A.N.S. will also notify of filing activity related to personal property, liens and plat filings.

“With our Clerk of Superior Court partners, we are excited to roll out F.A.N.S. We believe the Filing Activity Notification System gives the property owner tools to monitor filing activity which could help prevent property fraud,” stated John Earle, GSCCCA Executive Director.

Citizens can simply register with an email address or telephone number. After submitting a name, the user will receive an email and/or text notification whenever a filing related to that name is filed in the selected records.

The Georgia Superior Court Clerks’ Cooperative Authority was created by an act of the Georgia General Assembly in 1993. The purpose of the GSCCCA is to provide a cooperative for the development, acquisition, and distribution of record management systems, information, services, supplies, and materials for Superior Court Clerks and Georgia’s citizens, while providing cost savings to local government and the state of Georgia.

NOTE: Lamar’s clerk Caleb Tyson made this announcement Friday morning. Commissioner Nancy Thrash serves on the board overseeing the rollout.

    While I think this is a positive development, it is definitely not going to help my family, who is already embroiled in a legal dispute over land that we purchased “free and clear” over four years ago. A verification process that will only allow legitimate “filings” must be instituted.
