Wayne County Register of Deeds Eliminates Backlog

The Wayne County Register of Deeds made national headlines last year. Not the good kind. Title companies complained that Wayne County had a gap of up to six months between when a document was filed at the county office and when it was available to someone searching land records by computer. Although the office denied the length of the backlog alleged in the federal lawsuit filed by seven land title companies, Bernard Youngblood of the Register of Deeds office announced that the backlog has been eliminated. The county claims that documents are now registered within minutes, and mailed documents are registered the next day.
