The COVID-19 situation is impacting the daily operations of certain county and other jurisdictional agencies that we rely upon to provide documents and information to us.
At this time data currency within the DataTrace® System, the county 'plant through dates' have been minimally impacted. We expect changes to occur. We continue to receive data and images as normal for most counties; however counties experiencing disruptions may result in delays for document image availability leading to an impact to ‘plant through dates’.
DataTrace is your trusted partner to help your business overcome disruption to the valuable services that serve your communities. As a result, DataTrace® has launched a 40-year title plant for Philadelphia, PA county.
In our ongoing efforts to streamline searching in our title plants, we are pleased to announce an upcoming change for several counties in Southern California.
Since the late 1990’s, DataTrace has maintained a dual index for arbed properties, the standard ‘A’ prefix arb and a secondary ‘G’ prefix arb. We have started a clean-up effort that will allow us to completely remove the entire ‘G’ arb index - all go-forward searching can be done with just the ‘A’ arb. This change will be done for the chain records, as well as for any open order activity, creating a seamless user experience.
We are pleased to announce the addition of the Mercer County, NJ Title Plant to DataTrace System (DTS), effective February 18, 2020. The new title plant is geographically posted back to August 25, 1997.
Mercer has been one of the most requested counties in New Jersey by customers. The plant will be made available immediately to current DTS Subscribers.
In an effort to continually improve your access to title data, DataTrace® is expanding the information available in our title plant records. The enhanced data is now available in all 428 traditional title plants.
