Maricopa County Recorder's Office

Arizona Electronic Recording Commission

In accordance with A.R.S. § 11-487.06 (This section is repealed by Laws 2005, Ch. 109, § 2, effective January 1, 2008), the Arizona Electronic Recording Commission adopted standards implementing the Arizona Uniform Real Property Electronic Recording Act (Arizona URPERA), A.R.S. §§ 11-487 to 11-487.06 (This section is repealed by Laws 2005, Ch. 109, § 2, effective January 1, 2008).

The Arizona Electronic Recording Commission members are:

  • Hon. Helen Purcell, Commission Chair Maricopa County Recorder
  • Hon. Laura Dean-Lytle, Pinal County Recorder
  • H. Ross Jameson, CMC Premier Financial Services, Inc.
  • John T. Lotardo, Esq. Stewart Title and Trust of Phoenix, Inc.
  • Scott Malm, Esq. Gust Rosenfeld, PLC
  • Hon. F. Ann Rodriguez, Pima County Recorder
  • Hon. Ana Wayman-Trujillo, Yavapai County Recorder

The Commission has adopted standards to implement the Arizona Uniform Real Property Electronic Recording Act in accordance with A.R.S. § 11-487.06 (This section is repealed by Laws 2005, Ch. 109, § 2, effective January 1, 2008). These standards are consistent with electronic recording practices of other states and those adopted by national standard setting bodies. Additionally, the Commission considered in developing these standards the views of interested persons as well as the needs of counties of varying sizes, populations and resources.

The Arizona Electronic Recording Commission also had the duty to recommend to the legislature what electronic recording laws, if any, need to be modified and what the modifications should be. As such, the Commission determined that the current electronic recording laws do not need to be modified and would not recommend that the legislature amend any of the electronic recording laws.

Lastly, in the Arizona Administrative Register on November 23, 2007, the Commission published the Arizona Electronic Recording Standards as a Notice of Agency Guidance Document. The notice provides that the standards will be made available to the public free of charge on the websites of all the County Recorders. With its mission completed, the Arizona Electronic Recording Commission will cease to exist as of December 31, 2007 pursuant to Laws 2005, Chapter 109.
