Multifunctional Confusion

by @ 1:05 pm. Filed under Indexing

A few days ago I wrote about the new amendment that codified the previous registry practice of charging multiple fees for documents that performed multiple functions, a practice that was overruled by the Appeals Court in the Patriot Resort case. The new amendment cleared the way for registries to return to the prior practice. Unfortunately, the language of the amendment may be open to multiple interpretations, so individuals trying to record documents are apparently confronting unexpected fees, even under the new system. I’m confident the formula for charging for multiple documents will be clarified soon, but in the meantime, here’s a document that the Registers of Deeds Association produced back in 2006 that lays out the calculations of charging (or not chargine) multiple fees under a variety of scenarios.
