Only allowing e-recording could be a BIG problem for us
by Jeanine Johnson | 2020/03/23 |

I've been getting emails about various counties that are only accepting e-recordings right now and don't have staff at the counter to open mail or accept documents for recording. Based on "first to record is first in right" in most states, that is a  big problem. E-recordings will go on first, with no date as to when mail-in or walk-in documents will again be recorded. In attempting to get an answer, there have been no responses yet.

Anyone hear of a "work-around" on this? I presume it is happening all over the country.

You make a really good point

You make a really good point, because NC is a "race state" too.

 I am interested to see how this will play out...

 Please let us know if you need anything and we will be more than happy to assist you.

Race Notice States
Thanks Will,  I'll try to keep SOT posted on what's happening. Minnesota has closed all non-essential government offices and non-essential private offices. The MN Land Title Association has sent a letter to the Governor asking for an exception as an essential service for the economy. Not sure how that will play out...?

Race Notice States Issue with Erecording Only

I work in a Circuit Clerk's Office in Arkansas, and I had this same question. I reached out to the Legal Council for the Arkansas Association of Counties, and they are not sure if we can actually erecord without being able to accept mail or walk ins because we are a "race notice" state. At this point we are of the position that this would give an unfair advantage to those who erecord, and put our citizens at a disadvantage.  For now our county is still processing mail and walk ins may drop their recordings off at the security checkpoint.

I will update with any new information I get.

Walk in (Update)

Charleston, SC is now open to public for recordings and all title work at normal business hours.  We're getting close to normal again, except for some of the usual "rules". Still have the 6 ft, masking.  Not sure about how many people.  I haven't seen a sign yet since it's only opened back up this morning.    I'm ready to go when someone is ready to send me for title work, etc.

 RULES:  12 person max (1st come/1st serve)        2 people can record at one time       2 hour limit on work stations (clean before & after use)      Processing priority for docs in this order: Counter customers, FedEx/UPS, Courier, Drop box and then US Mail

The above rules are for the Register of Deeds Office & should be easy to follow .
