Bucks County Recorder of Deeds Robin Robinson urges residents to comply with Gov. Wolf’s stay-at-home order to combat the spread of COVID-19.
In order to continue providing service, Robinson ensures that her office is ready to record documents remotely and has opened all records online.
Robinson has made sure that while the office is closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, there are employees who are able to remotely work from home.
For those companies or individuals that electronically record on a normal basis, those services will still be provided.
Any documents mailed to the office will still be recorded in a timely manner.
Since the majority of the public is now ordered to stay home, Robinson has opened all records, dating to 1684, to the public.
The office uses recording vendor Landex, which normally charges 15 cents per minute to search.
With the current situation having an unknown timeline, Robinson has decided to waive the 15-cent-per-minute fee.
Robinson said, “My goal is to keep all residents of the county safe in this uncertain time, this includes my employees. I am hoping to keep my office running as normally as possible during the COVID-19 pandemic, just with added precautions. Opening all online records is just an added bonus right now, and I hope that those who have time are able to utilize them.”
