An Average Day

What types of documents do we record on an average day here at the registry? I selected this past Tuesday, February 20 to use an example. A total of 238 documents were recorded; 98 were mortgages (41%), 27 were mortgage discharges (11%); 23 were homesteads (10%); 19 were municipal lien certificates (which aren’t really liens - 8%); 16 were deeds (7%); and 14 were orders of notice (the start of a foreclosure - 6%). The remaining 41 documents (17%) fell into 18 categories of document types. Now compare our statistics for the same day back in 2003. We recorded a total of 960 documents that day: 470 were mortgage discharges (49%); 184 were mortgages (19%); 95 were municipal lien certificates (10%); 64 were mortgage assignments (7%); 29 were deeds (3%); and 21 were homesteads (2%). The remaining 97 documents (10%) were divided among 19 document types.
