Kentucky’s public policy for accurate, transparent, and current land records makes it a criminal offense to file records that are forged, are groundless or contain material misstatements. Kentucky law further provides that instruments missing complete and accurate information regarding the person preparing the instrument and the address information of a person receiving an interest in the property by way of the instrument should not be received or permitted to be recorded. Defendants have participated in a scheme utilizing material misstatements of interests in mortgages filed in Kentucky and Plaintiffs no longer intend to receive such instruments for recording.
