Recording requirements

The Senate Judiciary Committee heard HB 1056 on recording requirements sponsored by Sen. Linda Brown and Sen. Koch. This bill amends the requirements for instruments and conveyances to be recorded and adds instances in which an instrument is considered validly recorded for purposes of providing constructive notice. This is a fix for a mistake made in a bill last year that made it seem like an additional witness was needed beyond the notary for property documents.

Representatives from Indiana County Recorders Association, Indiana Credit Union League, Corporation Indiana Land Title Association, Indiana Bankers Association, and Indiana State Bar Association Property Section testified in favor of the bill.  The bill passed 9-0.
