Last minute rush to register ground rents.

I love this article's reference to someone dropping off a disk containing hundreds of registration forms. These folks had three years to register. I bet many delayed to the last minute intentionally to punish the State for requiring registration.

But if you are dealing with a ground rent issue, don't count on the registry to be accurate or up-to-date for many months. The better practice is to continue to collect three years of ground rent and hold in escrow.
