DocMagic Inc., a provider of fully-compliant loan document preparation, compliance, eSign and eDelivery solutions for the mortgage industry, has announced that the firm has now completed its integration with the MERS eRegistry, making it one of only a few industry vendors to integrate with the widely used system. 

Launched in 2004, the MERS eRegistry is the legal system of record that identifies the owner or holder (controller) and custodian (location) for registered eNotes and provides greater liquidity, transferability and security for lenders, according to MERSCORP Holdings Inc. It was created in response to demand by the mortgage industry for a system to satisfy certain safe harbor requirements under the Uniform Electronic Transactions Act (UETA) from 1999, and the Electronic Signatures in Global and National Commerce Act (E-SIGN) from 2000.

“The MERS eRegistry system excels at effectively handling a vital service for eMortgage originations,” said Dominic Iannitti, president and CEO of DocMagic. “Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac both require use of the MERS® eRegistry for all eNotes they purchase. DocMagic’s integration with MERS’ system fulfills the GSEs’ requirement and thus allows us to pass the benefits that the service offers along to our customers.”
