Experience the Benefits of being a MERS® System Member!

The MERS® System is a national electronic database that tracks changes in mortgage servicing rights and beneficial ownership interests in loans secured by residential real estate. Two of the primary benefits of being a MERS® System Member (“Member”) are Saving money (Eliminates need for certain paper assignments, thus reducing costs associated with transferring mortgage rights) and Reducing issues related to breaks of chain in the title. At closing, the borrower and lender agree to name Mortgage Electronic Registration Systems, Inc. (MERS) as mortgagee or beneficiary on the mortgage or deed of trust; The lender then records the mortgage in the county land records and registers the information about the loan on MERS® System; MERS remains mortgagee in the land records as servicing rights and notes are bought and sold between active Members. No interests are transferred on the system; they are only tracked.

What are the benefits of MERS and the MERS® System?

Eliminates breaks in the chain of title; Hard dollar savings on each loan for lenders; Identity of servicer and investor available for free to homeowners via phone or Internet; Used by lenders to find undisclosed liens; Used by governments and code enforcement officers to find companies responsible for maintaining vacant and abandoned properties, Simplifies lien releases because chain of title starts and stops with MERS; Increases efficiency in sale of loans and servicing transfers in secondary market and Uses the Mortgage Identification Number (MIN) assigned to each loan for tracking throughout the life of a loan.
