Registration is also necessary when it comes to establishing a title or proof of ownership. As for the registering agency, this offers a means security enforcement and provides revenue enhancements.

Context


Usage of such terminology is most often associated with state level recordings here in the united states. However, it is also frequently conflated with the federal documentation process or a foreign registry.
