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 and processed during Register of Deeds office hours.

Berrien County does not accept the following documents electronically:

  • Court certified documents
  • Death Certificates
  • Surveys
  • Corners
  • Masters Deeds and Amendments to a Master Deed
  • Plat Recordings

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. Contact the eRecording vendor to discuss electronic submission of documents and associated fees.

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