With e-Recording, the submitter scans the document and uses a vendor application to upload the document and associated data. No special equipment is required, just a computer with high speed internet access and a scanner. Original documents never leave the submitter’s possession since they are scanned for submission.

E-Recording documents can be tracked through the entire process. Documents are recorded the same day, if submitted during regular business hours. Once the document is accepted, you can immediately retrieve an image that includes the recorder’s stamp from eRecorderofdeeds.com.

Other margins must be of sufficient size to be legibly reproduced on document standards. 1-inch margins should be of sufficient size.

• The address (street number, street name, town, and condominium unit number, if applicable) of the property on a deed, mortgage, or a discharge of a mortgage shall be typed or printed clearly on a prominent location on the first page.

REGISTERED LAND

In most cases, the requirements for Registered Land documents are the same as those for Recorded Land; however, the additional requirements should be noted:

• Documents relating to Registered Land must note the Certificate of Title number, relevant document number, and book and page number of the Certificate.

• Deeds require a lot number, a plan number, a grantee address, consideration, property address, and “being” clause. The grantor must be the same as that on the current Certificate of Title.

• Mortgages are required to have an exhibit containing the property description, which must have the certificate number, plan number, and a lot number.

• When one tenant by the entirety named on a Certificate of Title has died, a Death Certificate and Certificate of No Divorce must be filed.

• If the property in question relates to both Registered and Recorded Land, submitters must either obtain two sets of originals (one for Registered Land and one for Recorded Land), or register the documents first, have certified copies made of the Registered Land documents, and then record the certified copies as Recorded Land.

Documents held by the Registry of Deeds are public information and are available for viewing at the registry office. The Northern Bristol County Registry of Deeds holds property records in two locations: Taunton and the Attleboro Registry of Deeds. The Attleboro Registry does not record Registered Land documents.

History

Bristol County was created by the Plymouth Colony on June 2, 1685,[5] and named after its “shire town” (county seat), Bristol.[6] The Plymouth Colony merged into the Massachusetts Bay Colony in 1691.

The towns of Bristol, Barrington, and Warren were awarded to Rhode Island in 1746 as part of a long-running boundary dispute (see History of Massachusetts), forming Bristol County, Rhode Island. At the same time, Cumberland, Rhode Island was carved out of Attleborough, Massachusetts and annexed to Providence County, Rhode Island; Tiverton and Little Compton were transferred to Newport County, Rhode Island. East Freetown was officially purchased by Freetown, Massachusetts, from Tiverton in 1747, and so remained on the Massachusetts side.

After the departure of Bristol, Taunton was made the capital of the county. A second county courthouse was constructed in 1828 in the growing town of New Bedford (designed a “half-shire town”). In 1862, part of Seekonk (now East Providence, Rhode Island) and the entirety of East Pawtucket were transferred to Providence County, Rhode Island. At the same time, land ceded from Rhode Island was added to Fall River and Westport. The growing Fall River became the site of the third county courthouse in 1877.[6]
