Largest Repository of Recorded Document Images


What is a Recorded Document?

When property-centric documents are signed, they are converted into digital copies for ease of storage. These so-called document images provide valuable data about properties and ownership — data that would otherwise be inaccessible.

Why are Recorded Documents So Important?

Across industries, recorded documents relevant to a property and ownership are critical to providing the insight and intelligence needed to make sound business decisions. This encompasses the need to validate data, access record-related documents and perform legal due diligence. With First American and our nationwide network of abstractors, digital copies of the property-centric documents you need are only a few clicks away.
