eRecording

In accordance with the Michigan Electronic Recording Commission standards effective January 1, 2014, the Berrien County Register of Deeds accepts documents submitted electronically for recording (eRecording).

eRecording delivers documents electronically to the Register of Deeds office rather than by delivery service or in person. While the documents may be submitted anytime, and are “received” as such, the eDocument will be reviewed during regular Register of Deeds office hours. The Register of Deeds electronically records all document types except for court certified documents and death certificates.

 The Berrien County Register of Deeds only accepts eDocuments from trusted eRecording vendors:

The Register of Deeds collects recording fees as prescribed by state and local statutes, additional processing fees may be collected by the eRecording vendors. Please contact these companies regarding eRecording information and pricing.

If you use an eRecording service provider not listed here, please have your provider contact Lora L. Freehling, Berrien County Register of Deeds.
