RecordingOriginal deeds and mortgages are submitted to the County Register of Deeds in the county where the property is located.  The Register of Deeds will create an image of the document and assign it a number among the records which are available for public viewing.   It is the means by which notice is given to the world of the existing ownership and liens for a given piece of property.  As part of our commitment to service at Fairlane Title, upon closing we assume the responsibility to record all deeds, discharges, liens, or mortgages in full compliance with our commitment.  These costs are included in the settlement statement.
