PRIA Publishes Toolkit for Assessing the Effects of Predictable Recording Fees Print E-mail
Written by Property Records Industry Association   
Tuesday, 11 July 2017

Raleigh, N.C. – On June 21, the Board of Directors of the Property Records Industry Association (PRIA) authorized publication of a Predictable Recording Fees Toolkit.  This is the second deliverable in a three-part project that includes a background paper on predictable fees, published in April, and a legislative tracking component to follow introduction and enactment of predictable fees across the 50 states. 

This project was approved by the PRIA Board of Directors in response to inquiries from members in search of information about predictable fee structures, and overseen by Jerry Lewallen, president, eRecording Partners Network, and Sharon Martin, register of deeds, Washington Co., Wis.

Gerald Smith, recorder of deeds, St. Louis Co., Mo., government co-chair of the work team that produced the toolkit explains, “PRIA members, government and business, have been seeking guidelines for studying the potential effects of predictable recording fees for their respective states and this toolkit offers concepts for consideration.”

Dan Shmukler, national sales manager, CSC eRecording Solutions, business sector co-chair, observed, “One of the valuable components of this toolkit is the testimonial experiences offered by recorders in three states that have enacted predictable fee structures.”

According to PRIA President Mark Ladd, vice president of regulatory and industry affairs for Simplifile, “The PRIA Board of Directors has endorsed the predictable recording fees concept and this toolkit explores how a predictable fee structure could benefit everyone: the recording jurisdictions, consumers and industry partners.”
