Document Retrieval

Document Retrieval is a search that is performed for a specific document, such as a Mortgage, Deed of Trust, Assignment, Release, Satisfaction, Deed, etc. The documents can be copies, county certified copies or an abstracted report. (The abstracted report contains the information just as it appears on the document itself.) Copies and abstracted reports are returned to you electronically as an email attachment. County certified copies are normally returned via express shipping.

Current Vesting Information

This is a search for the most recent deed that has been recorded. A search for prior deeds, or a chain of title for a certain period of time, or a specific party can be done as well - whatever you need. This can include taxes and/or assessments as well. Copies and reports can be returned to you electronically as an email attachment.

Document Recording is a service we provide to get an original document officially recorded at a County Recorder's Office. This service puts that document and its information in the official records of that county. The recording information and / or the officially recorded document is returned back to you. If the officially recorded document is not available immediately upon recording, in most cases we can provide a photocopy with recording information stamped on that copy (also called a county conformed copy).

In many counties throughout the U.S. we can electronically record your document rapidly. The advantages to e-recording a document is that is gets into the Recorder's records much faster than being delivered to the County and there is no worry about lost or misplaced paperwork - the document never leaves our office. Confirmation of Recording is obtained immediately and is emailed to you swiftly.
