Electronic Recording Requirements

​The Wake County Register of Deeds is accepting all documents 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.
