BURNETT COUNTY, Wis. (PRWEB) February 28, 2015
The register of deeds’ office in Burnett County, Wis., has implemented electronic recording (e-recording) of land documents through Simplifile, the nation’s largest e-recording service provider.
“We started e-recording because we saw it was the up and coming technology,” said Burnett County Register of Deeds Jeanine Chell. “We wanted to provide the same conveniences to the public that they are already receiving from many counties in this state.”
E-recording is a secure method of submitting, receiving, and processing documents for recording online, which are otherwise submitted by mail, runner, or courier service.
With Simplifile’s e-recording service now available, organizations such as title offices, banks, attorneys, and lien filers will be able to submit documents via the Internet and have them recorded and returned back from the register of deeds’ office in minutes.
According to Chell, the county is currently accepting all document types for e-recording through Simplifile with the exception of plats and certified survey maps.
Recording fees and payments can also be processed securely through Simplifile, eliminating check-writing expenses.
High-speed Internet access, a PC, and a scanner are the minimum requirements for customers to begin e-recording with Simplifile.
Burnett County is Wisconsin’s 44th county adopt Simplifile’s service and joins more than 1,195 recording jurisdictions e-recording with Simplifile nationwide.
