Documents are recorded through out each business day. When the real estate records are researched it is important to know how up-to-date the recording process is. Minnesota Statutes require documents to be recorded within 10 business days, starting January 3, 2011. Recorded documents can be searched immediately by party names or document type. (Manual tracting of Lots/Blocks was discontinued 10/31/2009.)
