The Massachusetts Registers of Deeds Association has just adopted a draft of new Deed Indexing Standards. This new version greatly expands the standards that were adopted in 2000, adding a variety of sections on plans, excise tax calculation, document formatting and a variety of other things. Our objective was to make this a one-stop recording handbook for Massachusetts. The Association made some final changes which have to be incorporated into the draft. This should be done by early next week. Then, we will distribute copies of the new proposed standards to the various bar associations for comment and suggestions. A copy of the draft will be posted on http://www.lowelldeeds.com/ for anyone else who is interested in seeing it. In tomorrow’s blog posting, we will try to discuss some of the most significant items contained in the new versions of the standards.
