eRecording Counties Top 800 Mark

July 12, 2012

The number of counties that are electronically recording documents reached the 800 mark on June 30 according to Kay Wrucke, recorder, Martin County, (Minn.), and president of the Property Records Industry Association (PRIA).

“Between September 2011 and June 2012, the number of counties committing to the eRecording process increased by 14.3 percent,” said Larry Burtness, Washoe County (Nevada) chief deputy recorder and PRIA Technology Committee co-chair. “As the PRIA eRecording standards continue to mature, the number of counties leveraging this technology continues to expand.”

According to PRIA’s tracking system, it took from the late 1990s until August 2006 to reach the 200 eRecording counties mark. That number has now more than quadrupled in the ensuing six years.

“It’s exciting to see so many counties embracing this technology and, along with the technology, the PRIA standards,” Wrucke said.
