PITTSFIELD, Mass. — The county's three registers of deeds say they will be working together to ensure consistency in procedures in the three offices.
Maria T. Ziemba, Northern Berkshire District Register of Deeds; Patricia M. Harris, Berkshire Middle District Register of Deeds; and Michelle Laramee-Jenny, Southern Berkshire District Register of Deeds, were all sworn into office in the Middle Berkshire District Registry of Deeds on Wednesday, Jan. 2.
All three registers have agreed to identify and standardize any differences in recording requirements and procedures between the registries in an effort to become more accommodating to law firms, financial institutions and their support staff; ultimately benefitting their clients, customers and all landowners throughout Berkshire County.
According to the statement issued by the registers, they say that although uniformity is important, each register agrees that the needs of the homeowners within their own districts will remain their first priority along with improved public access to all records.
