CREATE USER ACCOUNT

INSTRUCTIONS

Please read all of these instructions before selecting your account type below.

DO YOU NEED TO SUBMIT OR UPDATE NOTICES OR REGISTRATIONS?
You must have one of these user accounts: Company Administrator, Input Administrator, or Input Agent.

  • If you are employed by or otherwise representing a company or trust that is a lender, secured party, or purchaser of a foreclosed property, then you are a COMPANY USER and need a user account associated with your company. If your business is a sole proprietorship or you purchased foreclosed property using an LLC, you are also considered a Company User. If you are a representative or agent, your account should be with your company of employment (not the company you are representing). Please read the descriptions under "SELECT TYPE OF USER ACCOUNT" before selecting the appropriate role for your company user account.

  • If you are an individual who is acting in their own capacity as a lender, secured party, or foreclosure sale purchaser, or if you are an independent real estate agent/broker representing one of the former, then you are an INDIVIDUAL USER and need an account without a company affiliation. Please select "Input Agent" in the section below, and follow the instructions so your account is not tied to a company.

DO YOU ONLY NEED TO SEARCH AND VIEW NOTICES OR REGISTRATIONS?
Pursuant to Maryland law, only those employed by or otherwise representing a Maryland state agency, county, or municipal corporation are authorized access to certain foreclosure notices and registrations in their jurisdiction.

  • If you are a Maryland state or local government employee or representative authorized in your official capacity to request access to this system, then you are a GOVERNMENT USER. Please select "Government User" in the section below.

  • If you are or represent a homeowner’s or condominium association, or an owner with property on the same block as an address in question, you may request information about a specific property by contacting your local officials. You may also contact Financial Regulation staff for assistance. Associations and other property owners are not authorized to have direct access to this system.

If you have questions or need clarification, please consult the User Guide before contacting Financial Regulation staff at FinReg.ForeclosureSystems@maryland.gov.





SELECT TYPE OF USER ACCOUNT
After reading the instructions, review the following user account descriptions and select the appropriate account type for your role. Please see the User Guide for more information about these roles.

If you are employed by a company and are unsure which account type is appropriate, please consult your company’s management for guidance. Be aware that an authorized company representative must have an approved Company Administrator account before other users can create their accounts with the company.



A Company Administrator has access to all of the company's user accounts and the notices or registrations submitted by the company's users. A Company Administrator can invite and approve new users with the company account. A Company Administrator has access to view and update the notices and registrations they submitted and those submitted by all other users with the company account. There must be at least one Company Administrator for each company account. A maximum of three Company Administrators are allowed per company account. If you are the first user with your company to create an account, then you must create a Company Administrator account. The account creation process includes submitting information about your company; this establishes your company’s account in the system. The initial account request requires Financial Regulation staff approval prior to the account becoming active. After this account has been approved, users may create additional user accounts with the company; please be aware that some accounts may need approval by existing Company Administrators.


An Input Administrator has access to view and update the notices and registrations they submitted and those submitted by all other users with the company account. Input Administrators can be invited to create an account by a Company Administrator. An Input Administrator may create an account without an invitation, but the account must be approved by the Company Administrator before it will become an active account. An Input Administrator can invite Input Agents to create accounts.


An Input Agent only has access to the notices and registrations they submit. Company User Input Agents can be invited to create an account by either Company Administrators or Input Administrators. An Input Agent may create an account without an invitation, but the account must be approved by a Company Administrator before it will become an active account. Individual Users create their account by selecting this account type and following the instructions on the account creation page. Individual Users must enter "NA" for company.


Government Users are Maryland state, county, and municipal officials authorized in their official capacity to request access to the system. Government Users have view-only access to notices of foreclosure filings or foreclosed property registrations in their appropriate county jurisdiction. Government User accounts need Financial Regulation staff approval prior to the account becoming active.
