Electronic Recording Update

by @ 8:20 am. Filed under E-Recording

There must be some national developments in electronic recording because over the past few days, I’ve received several phone calls and emails from a variety of people who work for potential submitters or service providers. I don’t know what else could have prompted this flurry of interest in a topic that’s been dormant for many months. To put this in context, we’ve been recording a limited number of documents electronically since June 2005 in a pilot program intended to teach us more about the process of electronic recording. Our goal is to use our accumulated experience to help craft regulations that would govern electronic recording for the Commonwealth of Massachusetts in the future. Until just recently, expressions of interest in going forward with electronic recording were sporadic and because the system as currently configured has a number of flaws, I have not been anxious to increase the tempo of electronic recording. Sometime during the next few months, however, the Secretary of State’s Office intends to schedule an electronic recording summit meeting that will permit us to share our experiences with representatives of the other Massachusetts registries and to have a discussion about the future of electronic recording.
