Reducing the Risk of Real Estate Wire Fraud - Clareity Security

Ongoing bad publicity related to real estate transaction wire fraud threatens to damage the reputation of the real estate industry. Previous issue descriptions have been incomplete and have also not provided thorough guidance for those brokerages, title companies, attorneys, and others that engage internally in the wiring of funds or interact with the consumer regarding wire transfers.This paper provides information relevant not just for those directly establishing and communicating wiring instructions, but also for those just acting in an advisory role to the consumer during the transaction.

The paper includes best practices – sample procedures and communications gathered from franchises, brokers, title companies and others. It also includes a sample company policy Clareity Consulting has created based on both these best practices and on our experience advising brokerages and other companies regarding information security. Not all aspects of this paper will apply to all companies involved in the transaction, and what is relevant will still need to be tailored to an individual company’s business processes. Still, it provides a valuable starting place toward reducing the risk of wire fraud.

The Mobile/Manufactured home can be included in the MLS if the land the mobile/Manufactured sits on is for sale.  read more...
