Getting Started

Using Northern Essex’s e-Recording System a document can be submitted to the Registry of Deeds for electronic recording. This efficient, reliable service allows users to file documents from the convenience of their office.

The Northern Essex Registry of Deeds has been accepting electronic filing of documents since 2012. In 2016 e-Recording skyrocketed to an astounding 52% of the documents recorded by the Northern Essex Registry with some days seeing totals topping 60%.

All documents that meet the recording standards of the Registry may be recorded electronically.  As of May 10, 2017, Registered Land (Land Court) documents which can be filed electronically. At the present time, Simplifile is the only intermediary providing electronic recording for Registered Land.
