Recording Process Status

Documents are recorded through out each business day. When the real estate records are researched it is important to know how up-to-date the recording process is. Minnesota Statutes require documents to be recorded within 10 business days, starting January 3, 2011. Recorded documents can be searched immediately. (Manual tracting of Lots/Blocks was discontinued 10/31/2009.) 

Abstract Recording Process Status

Currently party names, PINS and legal descriptions have been double checked through 01/27/2023.
