The Wake County Register of Deeds is accepting all documents except maps for electronic recording (eRecording). Electronic recording results in greater efficiency and better use of public and private resources. Productivity increases by minimizing time requirements and reducing costs.
Financial institutions, law firms and other businesses involved in real estate transactions achieve great benefits from electronic recording by eliminating the manual processing effort required by traditional document recording. To learn more about the benefits of eRecording, click on this link.
Requirements to become an authorized submitter:
Financial and legal companies (title companies, banks, attorneys, etc.) that would like to submit documents electronically to the Wake County Register of Deeds must first select one of our authorized eRecording providers:
Upon selecting an authorized provider, complete the Submitter Memorandum of Understanding (MOU)
. The completion of this document is required to submit documents electronically with the Wake County Register of Deeds Office. Email your completed MOU to ROD-EMOUSubmission@wakegov.com
. You will then receive an email within two business days containing a unique identification number that is required to submit documents electronically with Wake County.
eRecordings must be received in our office no later than 4:30 P.M. on the business day before a County holiday. The business day prior to a county holiday tends to be very busy for our office and to ensure staff can complete all necessary work during regular business hours, this 4:30 P.M. deadline has been established. Please note that submitting a document through your eRecording vendor at 4:30 P.M. does not mean it will arrive in our office at 4:30 P.M. Be sure to submit through your vendor well before 4:30 P.M. to ensure documents arrive by the deadline. Click here
