month.!
Nov. 4th, 2014. I attended a meeting at the The San Diego County Recorders’ office
with our CLSA Chapter County Recorder’s Committee and about 25 others, including
mapping staff from various agencies. At the meeting the new recording system was
demonstrated and questions were answered.!
The system is to be is implemented on December 15, 2014. Most of the changes are to
occur “behind the scenes” and will not be noticeable to us, but there are several
changes affecting customers:!
• Scanning for recorded documents will be done at the counter for walk-in
documents. Scanning must be done before the document can be recorded.
Conformed copies will no longer be available, and the service will be replaced by
selling the 1st page of the recorded document which contains a recording label for
$2.00. The scanned copy is labeled electronically.!
• Recording numbers for maps will have a dedicated numbering series with a number
such as 2014-7XXXXXX. This will increment consecutively each year and begin
again in a new year. This is the recording number only, not the map number.!
• Final Maps, Parcel Maps, and Records of Survey will continue to have the same
map numbering system as we have today. !

Business and Professions Code was amended with a few significant items.!

state, city and county, district, or special district pursuant to this section is responsible for compliance subdivisions(b) and (c) of Section 8771.!
8771 was cleaned up and organized. It added clarification to responsibilities by adding (d) The governmental agency performing or permitting construction or

Assembly Bill 186 was approved 27 SEP 14. This is for military spouses and it requires an applicant seeking a temporary license to successfully pass the California
