Someone asked me this question:

How quickly is a document received by the registry of deeds “recorded” and how soon after the document is recorded does it appear on the registry’s website?

Documents brought to us by a human being are recorded as the person is standing there. When the customer walks away from the recording counter, the document is already on recorded and as soon as a document is on recorde (i.e., in our computer system), the recording information about that document is immediately available on the website. Documents that are sent to us by mail (about 40% of our total recording volume) are almost always recorded the same day that they are received. All documents are usually scanned the day after they are recorded, so the images of newly recorded documents are typically available within 24 hours of recording. But again, data about newly recorded documents (the parties involved, property address, type of document, etc) is available immediately.
