MERS® System

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. 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.

The MERS® System is not a legal system of record, nor a replacement for the public land records. No interests are transferred on the system; they are only tracked.
