(Document Summary Sheet) which is then attached to the original
document and submitted for recording. After the document is
received by the County Clerk's office, recording and indexing
take place almost immediately and the recording information is
automatically available here on this site. The documents are
then scanned and verified and returned to the sender within days.
Level II will include a scanned image of the document, supplied by
the sender, along with the Document Summary Sheet. Recording &
indexing will take place as usual and the recorded image is returned
to sender with all recording information electronically stamped on it.

As we continue to progress, Level III will be true electronic
recordation for discharge of mortgages and certain other documents.
Our goal is to provide the best possible service to the people of
New Jersey and to make the recording process as timely and efficient
