There is now a fillable PDF form available on the DRS website. It remains a two page document, with a copy for the DRS and one for the town clerk.

Effective July 15, 2013, there are special remittance rules for the recording of documents by a Nominee of a Mortgagee; Mortgage Electronic Registration Systems, Inc. (MERS): For Assignments and Releases where Nominee is the GRANTOR, the recording fee is a flat $159.
For all other document types where Nominee is either Grantor OR Grantee (including Assignments and Releases where Nominee is the GRANTEE) the recording fee is $159 for the first page, and $5 for each additional page of the document.
In general, documents such as Lis Pendens, Certificates of Foreclosure, Affidavits, and Releases of Lis Pendens are not subject to the higher fee because the Nominee did not initiate nor are they a direct party in the action.
However, if the Nominee acquires ownership of a property through a foreclosure action, the recording fee for the Satisfaction of Judgment would be $159 for the first page and $5 for each additional page of the document.
