BECKER COUNTY, Minn. (PRWEB) July 21, 2015
Becker County is now accepting electronic documents for recording through Simplifile, the nation’s largest e-recording service, providing document submitters with a faster, more cost-effective recording method online.
Instead of having to drive to the recorder’s office or send documents by mail, runner or courier service, customers such as title companies, banks and attorneys now have the ability to submit documents securely to the recorder’s office in minutes through Simplifile’s web-based service.
“My goal as new Recorder was to implement e-recording, which we have achieved,” said Becker County Recorder Patty Swenson. “Becker County is always looking at ways to better service our taxpayers and customers. E-recording provides better service by improving document turnaround time.”
Once the documents are received electronically at the county, they are reviewed, stamped, recorded and returned back to the submitter through Simplifile in minutes.
“We’re excited to work with Becker County and provide them with this easy-to-use service,” said Paul Clifford, president of Simplifile. “The convenience and value it brings to customers’ day-to-day work lives is undeniable, not to mention the cost-savings on paper, postage, and check-writing expenses among other benefits that ensue.”
According to Swenson, Becker County is currently accepting all document types for e-recording through Simplifile, with the exception of Torrens.
Recording fees and payments can also be processed securely through Simplifile, helping to reduce payment errors.
If an electronic document is rejected for any reason, customers are notified immediately through Simplifile, giving them the ability to quickly correct and resubmit the document back to the county.
