Electronic Recording Delayed until Next Week

The Registry of Deeds has decided to temporarily delay the implementation of Electronic Recording until next week. While the Electronic Recording system is ready for live use, we have been experiencing connectivity issues due to an upgrade to our T1 lines to increase bandwidth. Although these upgrades have slightly delayed electronic recording, they will help us to continue to provide the highest quality services to our users. We will continue to post updates on the implementation of Electronic Recording here on our blog.

Electronic Recording - Coming Next Week

After years of research and many months of development, the Registry of Deeds will begin live electronic recording next week. We are happy to be working with the Webster First Federal Credit Union for the initial live recordings to verify the electronic recording process. We will be opening electronic recording to a range of submitters shortly thereafter.

Electronic recording is the most significant of the Registry's many efforts to make our operation as digitized as possible. These innovations will allow the Registry to reduce costs and go green at a time when it is most pressing, while maintaining high quality service for our users. Thank you all for following the Registry's progress as we move towards reaching our goal.
