To ensure that all your land titles will be secured, you may consider converting them into e-Title. There are several reasons why you should consider e-Titles.

  • Converting your documents into digitized forms is a good way to prevent potential real estate scams. There are instances in which some unscrupulous people have been using spurious and fake land titles. But, if you have e-Titles you’ll have peace of mind that this won’t happen to you. The digitized form will be kept in an online Registry of Deeds vault.
  • Engaging in real estate sale transactions will be a lot easier and convenient. Verification of a specific property ownership history may be less stressful. It would be easier to obtain certified true copies of the documents.
  • Mortgage processing will be quicker. The time of processing a home loan can be reduced as well as the verification of authenticity can be done within few minutes.
  • In case the land titles are destroyed or lost, you can avoid the complex process of reconstitution once you have e-Titles.

Indeed, the main objective of e-Titles is to provide efficient service to all property owners so that they can proactively manage their properties.
