2407.2 (B) (2) Pending Recordations

2407.2 (B) (2) Pending Recordations

Documents that have been submitted for recordation may be inspected or copied by one of the persons who executed the document or an authorized representative of the aforementioned persons. The aforementioned persons also may inspect or obtain copies of any written communications between the remitter and the Office concerning a pending document, including the document cover sheet (if any).

Members of the general public may obtain limited information concerning pending documents using the computers located in the Public Records Reading Room. This information may include (I) the title(s) of the work(s) listed in the document, (ii) the name(s) of the parties who executed the document(s), and (iii) the date that the document was received by the Office, though much of this information may be incomplete.

NOTE: The computers in the Public Records Reading Room cannot be used to determine whether a document has been recorded, and the fact that a document has been submitted for recordation does not necessarily mean that a recordation has been made.

In the alternative, members of the public may ask RRCS to prepare a written report concerning a pending document. The Office charges a fee for this service, which is discussed in Section 2406.2 (C) above.
