Property Information & Transactions
There are two real estate recording systems in Minnesota - Abstract and Torrens.  There are different requirements for recording the documents in each system.  "Recording" means the documents are recorded, reproduced and returned to the presenter.  "Filing" means to keep the original document.  The document type (deed, mortgage, release, certificate) determines what the requirements are and what steps need to be taken.
