Existing law provides that certain advertising-related practices are unlawful and makes a violation of those provisions a crime.

This bill would make it unlawful for any person, firm, corporation, association, or any other business entity to make any untrue or misleading statements in any manner in connection with the offering or performance of a grant deed copy service, defined as a service, offered through a mailed solicitation to a property owner, to obtain, for compensation, a copy of the property owner’s grant deed or other record of title. The bill would make it unlawful to offer to perform this service without making specified disclosures. Because a violation of these provisions would be a crime, the bill would impose a state-mandated local program.

The California Constitution requires the state to reimburse local agencies and school districts for certain costs mandated by the state. Statutory provisions establish procedures for making that reimbursement.

This bill would provide that no reimbursement is required by this act for a specified reason. Hide
