How will Mailed Instruments be handled?
The Recorder’s Office will deliver mailed instruments to the UPI Staff multiple
times during the day, depending upon volume. The UPI Staff intends to respond
within one day. If a telephone number is provided, and a minor problem is
identified, a telephone call will be made. In other instances, the instrument will be
mailed back with an explanation form. For example, if the instrument provides a UPI
number ending “38,” and the correct UPI number is “83,” then a telephone call may
be made to obtain authorization to alter the instrument. Both the UPI Staff, and the
Recorder of Deeds Office, will review documents before returning them by mail, so as
to minimize the occurrence of a document being rejected by one office, corrected,
and then being rejected by the other office.
