Massachusetts Certificate Issuing and Timing Update

Date: December 18, 2018



An update for our clients and colleagues:  The Massachusetts Secretary of State Corporations Division has informed us that they are no longer offering the option to issue on the spot (rush) certificates to service companies (or couriers).  We are still able to request up to 5 "same day" certificates each business day, however the certificates are not expected to be issued until the end of the work day.  

Presently, due to the heavy volume of year end, the MA SOS is currently running at about a 2-3 day turnaround time for issuance of all other certificates.

We encourage clients to plan accordingly and order certificates several days ahead of closings.  We thank you for your consideration and patience during this busy time and will provide further updates if there are any policy changes.

Thanks and feel free to contact us with any questions!
