National Deed Service, Inc. offers a service that provides homeowners with a certified copy of their deed. A deed is a document that provides evidence that your property was transferred to you. The U.S. Government website, USA.gov, (http://www.usa.gov/Topics/Money/Personal-Finance/Managing-Household-Records.shtml) recommends that property owners should have a copy of their deed that is either govenment or court recorded. Other authorities on personal record retention also make the same recommendation.
National Deed Service, Inc. offers its services by sending property owners a letter offering to obtain a certified copy of their deed for a fee. National Deed Service, Inc. is not affiliated with any governmental agency. Many government records are available free or at a nominal cost from government agencies. Many of National Deed Service, Inc.’s clients prefer to use National Deed Service, Inc. to obtain their records as it saves them the time and administrative effort that would be required to directly obtain these documents.
It is not an easy process to obtain public records from a governmental agency. It often requires people to travel to the recorder’s office, lose time from work and pay, locate the proper office, deal with the people at the office, and locate their document and wait for the document to be produced. Sometimes, the process will take two trips, and in some cities the cost of parking alone could be $20 plus each day. This is not an easy process. When considering all of the above, the service provided by National Deed Service, Inc. is a cost and time effective service.
