Upcoming Postage Rate Increase

by @ 6:36 am. Filed under Registry Ops

The cost of postage will rise to $0.41 come May 14, 2007. Because some customers still give us self-addressed stamped envelopes in which to return their recorded documents by mail, we will require that any such envelopes left for registry use on and after Friday, May 4, 2007, carry the increased amount of postage. We must begin receiving higher amount of postage earlier than the USPS cutover date since we do not mail documents back the same day they are recorded. Under the new fee structure, the cost of one ounce of first class postage will be $0.41 with each additional ounce costing another $0.17.

Of course, you can dispense with return postage entirely if you take advantage of our scan and return policy at the recording counter. That process allows us to scan documents as part of the recording process and then hand back the original document (with all recording information affixed to it) to the person who recorded the document in just a few short minutes. For now, we’re offering this service on an optional basis, but soon it will be the way all documents are recorded.
