Real Estate

There are 2 real estate recording systems in Minnesota - Abstract and Torrens. There are different requirements for recording the documents in each system. Recording means the documents are reproduced (currently electronically) and originals returned to the presenter. Filing means to keep the original document. The document type (deed, mortgage, release, certificate) determines what the requirements are and what steps need to be taken.
