Electronic Recording Now Used By 250 Counties

May 3, 2007

Property Records Industry Association (PRIA)

MORRISVILLE, NC – The number of counties that have implemented electronic recording systems topped the 250 mark during the month of April according to the Property Records Industry Association (PRIA). eRecording is the process of receipt, examination, fee calculation and payment, endorsing of recording information and return of recorded electronic documents submitted for recording in a county’s land records office.

“It is exciting to see the number of counties converting to eRecording growing at a steady pace,” said Linn County (IA) Recorder and PRIA Technology Committee co-chair, Joan McCalmant. “As the PRIA eRecording standards continue to mature, the number of counties leveraging this technology is expanding.”

PRIA, the national standard setting body for the land records industry, maintains a list of counties that have deployed electronic recording technology and the list is posted on the association’s website ( The list includes counties whose implementations have been verified by PRIA.

The names of the eRecording Counties are available to the public, while only PRIA members have access to a detailed list which includes contact information for the counties and their technology vendors. The list is continually updated by the PRIA Technology Coordinator who tracks down reports of new eRecording enabled counties from a variety of sources.

“PRIA has worked diligently, in alliance with the Mortgage Industry Standards Maintenance Organization (MISMO), to develop XML standards and promote industry adoption of this important technology,” said PRIA President Mark Monacelli. “Electronic recording is experiencing unprecedented success with county recorders who have deployed the technology.” The automation that XML facilitates will help improve the quality of data, reduce turn-around times and provide significant cost savings for those who utilize it.
