Office of County Clerk/Register of Deeds

E-Recording

In today's competitive market, being able to save time and money, while supplying superior service to your clients and customers is critical. Electronic recording provides the opportunity to do all three while maintaining the service you expect from your local Register of Deeds office.

On August 27, 2013, the Michigan Electronic Recording Commission adopted the Michigan E-Recording Standards, effective January 1, 2014. Information regarding these standards can be found at The Michigan Department of Technology, Management & Budget website.
