This was my first experience with e-recording. Deeds.com was AWESOME! Within one hour, I signed up with Deeds.com, recorded a deed in a neighboring county and had access to a copy of the recorded deed. I also appreciate the fact that there are no monthly or annual fees. Thanks Deeds.com!

So far the service seems good, simple to use. One criticism, the password change feature should require the user to re-enter their old password, new password, and re-enter the new password to make sure there is no typos. Thanks.
