BROOME COUNTY, N.Y. (PRWEB) January 08, 2016
Simplifile, the nation’s largest electronic recording (e-recording) service, is now available to customers in Broome and Monroe counties in New York, enabling recording customers to quickly and cost-effectively record documents online.
“We saw the success that other communities were having with e-recording and how efficient it was,” said Broome County Clerk Richard R. Blythe. “It’s quicker than our present manual process and the customer can have their recorded document quickly.”
Using Simplifile’s secure, web-based service, customers ranging from title companies to banks, attorneys, and lien filers, can now scan or upload and submit documents directly to the county. In minutes, the documents are reviewed, stamped, recorded, and returned back to the submitter electronically.
According to Blythe, one of the county’s goals they hope to achieve with e-recording is to reduce the amount of paper needing to be processed and returned.
Blythe also said that his office is currently accepting deeds, mortgages, and assignments for e-recording through Simplifile, and by way of the NYS court system, e-filed civil actions.
“Having Simplifile’s service available will make the recording process so much more convenient and cost effective for both of these New York counties and their customers,” said Paul Clifford, president of Simplifile. “We’re excited to help them achieve their goals and help streamline the overall recording process.”
Recording fees and payments can also be processed securely through Simplifile, helping to reduce payment errors and eliminate check-writing expenses.
With the addition of Broome and Monroe counties, the state of New York now has 29 recording jurisdictions that have implemented Simplifile’s e-recording service, including New York City and its surrounding boroughs. Nationwide, more than 1,370 counties e-record with Simplifile.
High-speed Internet access, a PC, and a scanner are the minimum requirements for customers to begin submitting documents for e-recording through Simplifile.
