BUFFALO COUNTY, Wis. (PRWEB) December 15, 2014
The Buffalo County register of deeds office has made electronic recording (e-recording) of documents available through Simplifile, the nation’s largest e-recording service, enabling customers to submit documents for recording online.
“Many of our neighboring counties are e-recording, so I wanted to provide my customers with this convenient option for recording documents,” said Buffalo County Register of Deeds Carol Burmeister.
Using Simplifile’s secure, web-based service, customers such as title companies, banks, and attorneys will be able to electronically prepare, scan and upload documents and submit them directly to the register of deeds’ office online. This eliminates the need for the customer to drive to the county or send documents by mail or courier service.
According to Burmeister, e-recording will also allow a faster turnaround time for rejected documents.
“With e-recording, a rejected document can be immediately returned to the submitter, corrected and resubmitted for recording within a few hours,” she said. “Rejected documents received through the mail can take seven to 10 days or more to be resubmitted for recording.”
Increased document security and fewer payment errors are also some of the benefits of e-recording, as recording fees and payments can also be processed securely through Simplifile via Automated Clearing House.
“Simplifile is a great company to work with. From the time they received the required information for setting Buffalo County up in the system to the time of training and implementation was just a few weeks. Mark Moats came to the office to train the users and the next day we were able to accept electronic recordings,” Burmeister said.
Buffalo County is Wisconsin’s 43rd county to begin e-recording with Simplifile, joining more than 1,170 recording jurisdictions nationwide that make up Simplifile’s e-recoding network.
“We’re happy to welcome Buffalo County to our e-recording network and provide both the county and its customers with this cost-effective, easy-to-use recording technology,” said Paul Clifford, president of Simplifile.
High-speed Internet access, a PC, and a scanner are the minimum requirements for customers to begin e-recording with Simplifile.
