Current Bill Summary

SB 212 - This act establishes the Uniform Real Property Electronic Recording Act that allows for the recording of an electronic format document rather than a paper document. It also allows an electronic signature to qualify as a sufficient signature. Such electronic signature also satisfies the requirement that a document be notarized, verified, or taken under oath. The county recorder of deeds may convert paper documents into electronic form for the purpose of indexing, storing, and archiving and accept fees and documents electronically. This act also establishes the Electronic Recording Commission to adopt standards for implementing this act.

This act shall become effective January 1, 2008.

This act is similar to SCS/SB 924 (2006) & HB 920 (2007).
