Get your documents recorded in any county in the State of Maine as well as any county in the United States!
In time sensitive situations our nationwide network of recording agents hand deliver your document directly to the clerk to ensure your documents are recorded without delay. You go straight to the front of the line, past piles of documents mailed to the clerk's office, which can take weeks to get recorded. Once your document is recorded, we provide a copy of the recorded document or a county receipt with recording information – whichever fits your needs.
Occasionally, some counties become badly backlogged. This could delay the recording of your document even when we hand deliver it. If this happens, we monitor your document closely and keep you informed of the progress until we confirm it has been recorded.
Fast Electronic Document Recording
We can now electronically record your real estate documents in many counties around the US! Send us your documents and we'll record them electronically – saving you time & shipping costs.
When the recording is complete, you receive a confirmation of recording and a copy of the recorded document. This is much faster and more cost efficient than standard recording and we recommend it whenever possible! Find out more about electronic document recording.

Maine - Economics
In the 1980s, Maine successfully transformed a major portion of its economy into trade, service, and finance industries, the greatest growth occurring in and around Portland. Picturesque coastal and island resorts and the promise of tranquil outdoor life hold a strong appeal for tourists, recreational and seasonal visitors, and, increasingly, retirees, and tourism is an important contributor to the state’s economy.
Many of Maine’s traditional economic activities have experienced difficult times in recent years. Fishing, the state’s earliest industry, has declined considerably, although lobsters are still caught in abundance. Lumbering—the first sawmill in America was built in 1623 on the Piscataqua River—dominated industry and the export trade from the days when the white pines provided masts for the British navy, but with the big trees largely exhausted, Maine loggers now produce chiefly pulp for papermaking. The proximity of harbors to forests early encouraged shipbuilding, which reached its peak in the 19th cent. With the disappearance of wooden ships and the related timber trade, commercial activity slackened. Portland, the largest port, now operates far below its substantial capacity, handling chiefly oil for the pipeline to Montreal. Bath Iron Works, which builds warships, remains the state’s largest single-site employer.
Manufacturing is still the largest sector in the state’s economy. Maine is a leading producer of paper and wood products, which are the most valuable of all manufactures in the state. Food products and transportation equipment are also important, but production of leather goods (especially shoes) has declined. The mineral wealth of the state is considerable. Many varieties of granite, including some superior ornamental types, have been used for construction throughout the nation. Sand and gravel, zinc, and peat are found in addition to stone. However, much of Maine’s abundant natural and industrial resources remain undeveloped.
