Connecticut May Be First to Use Digital Deed System

February 3, 2005

If the Connecticut Real Property Electronic Recording System Act is passed this year, Connecticut will become the first state in the country to implement a statewide digital deed recording system.

The law would establish an electronic recording commission including the state chief information officer, the public records administrator, a representative from the Secretary of State's office, a member of the Real Property Law Section of the Connecticut Bar Association (CBA), a representative of the Connecticut Town Clerk's Association, a title insurer, and a mortgage banker.

The commission would be responsible for developing the standard system and procedures. Manchester, Stamford, Glastonbury, Norwich, and Norwalk already have digital systems in place for recording deeds.

Gregory Cava of the CBA's Real Property Law Section is concerned about spam, spyware, hackers, and other security threats as well as fraud. As a means of preventing fraud, he applauds the inclusion of a rule that prevents anyone other than the town clerk or an authorized worker in the clerk's office from recording deeds electronically.
