FinCEN Renews Real Estate Geographic Targeting Orders for 12 Metropolitan Areas

The terms of this Order are effective beginning November 1, 2021, and ending on April 29, 2022.  GTOs continue to provide valuable data on the purchase of residential real estate by persons possibly involved in various illicit enterprises.  Renewing the GTOs will further assist in tracking illicit funds and other criminal or illicit activity, as well as inform FinCEN’s future regulatory efforts in this sector.


The GTOs cover certain counties within the following major U.S. metropolitan areas:  Boston; Chicago; Dallas-Fort Worth; Honolulu; Las Vegas; Los Angeles; Miami; New York City; San Antonio; San Diego; San Francisco; and Seattle. 


FinCEN appreciates the continued assistance and cooperation of the title insurance companies and the American Land Title Association in protecting the real estate markets from abuse by illicit actors.


Any questions about the Orders should be directed to FinCEN’s Regulatory Support Section at [email protected].

A copy of the GTO is available here.
