Recording Documents

Abstract documents are recorded based upon their compliance with recording statutes. Minnesota is a "race to notice" state. Upon recording, documents are issued a sequential document number and the date and time of the recording is noted upon the document. Prior to the enactment of the Torrens Act in 1901, all land was abstract land.
