California law now allows any submitter, which meets the legal requirements, to electronically record with California Recorders participating in the ERDS program.

To electronically record with counties serviced by CERTNA, you will need the following:

  • Evidence (Certificate of Insurance) of liability insurance in an amount not less than $1,000,000.
  • An agreement with a CERTNA approved submitting agent.
  • An executed MOU with CERTNA. This is provided and processed by the agent.
