Indiana Reverses Controversial Recording Requirement

Title companies and many other parties routinely dealing with real estate transactions in Indiana are applauding Governor Holcomb’s signature of HB 1056 into law, which is effective immediately. The act reverses the recording law change on July 1, 2020, about which I wrote here.

Essentially, the so-called “proof witness,” previously required on recorded instruments, has been negated. Since July of last year, recorded documents such as mortgages and deeds needed two signatures and two notaries.  It was a pain, and now it’s over.
