Registered Land Doc Check

Last month we began to quality check our Registered Land Documents. In Massachusetts the Registry of Deeds is required to keep all original Reg Documents in its possession. Currently, we store about 220,000 documents in plastic containers (I blogged on these containers last month). It is painstaking work that requires patience and concentration. An employee literally flips through the documents one at a time looking for those that are missing or misfiled. When he/she finds a problem the instrument number is written down. The "checker" finishes the day by refiling found documents correctly. An employee can check approximately 1500 documents in a day. At this pace it will take between 12-15 weeks to run through all 220,000 docs.
