SUMMARY: This act allows no more than 20 mortgage assignments per document to be recorded on the land records. It increases, from $1 to $2, the fee for recording a mortgage assignment after the first two assignments. It eliminates an outdated reference to a marginal notation of a mortgage assignment.

The law authorizes town clerks to charge a $1 fee per page for a copy of any document recorded or filed in their offices. The act allows them to charge the fee for a copy in any format (e. g. , CD-ROM or microfilm).

EFFECTIVE DATE: October 1, 2012
