Lake County Recorder of Deeds Mary Ellen Vanderventer is cautioning homeowners who may have received deceptive letters regarding the deeds to their homes.

A video outlining the issue is available on YouTube. Anyone with questions or who needs a copy of their deed should call (847) 377-2575 or visit
