Wake Launches Online Document Program

Posted November 28, 2007 11:31 a.m. EST

— The Wake County Register of Deeds Office on Wednesday began electronically recording official documents over the Internet.

The service, known as eRecording, involves submitting, receiving and processing documents online, which means they are recorded, indexed and made available to the public more quickly, according to officials. Satisfactions, the documents banks, mortgage companies and attorneys send to record full payment of mortgages and other debt, will be the first form of eRecording service offered.

"We are confident that eRecording will process documents more efficiently, reduce document delivery time, and save on mailing costs for both our customers and our office," Register of Deeds Laura Riddick said in a statement. "I hope that all documents sent to the County, including deeds and other contracts, can be filed this way within a year."

Wake County is one of only two counties in North Carolina to offer the eRecording service.
