Not sure about your state but a certified copy of your deed here is a copy obtained from the registry of deeds that has been certified by the registrar as being a true copy there is a small fee for this certification.

it also crossed my mind that perhaps you do not have possesion of your original deed? Here the original is returned to the closing attorney following its recording at the registry of deeds. The closing attorney should then forward the recorded original to you although some simply place it in the closing file for safe keeping. If its not in your possesion ask the closing attorney.

I was standing in front of the judge with all the mortgage paper work that I had gotton from the purchase of this investement property. And I was there because I had issued a notice to quit to the tenant who didn’t want to move and didn’t want to pay a higher rental fee. Anyway to make a long story short I was holding all the cards because her 30 day lease was null and void. However the Judge told me I didn’t have a certified copy of my deed and that this could be a real problem for me and he sent me on my way with a second warning to get that business straight.

Question is what must I do and why was it not done at the time of purchase. Was there some short cut the seller took? Or some action that I just have yet to learn about. (which is probably the case)?
