GRUNDY COUNTY, Tenn. (PRWEB) July 18, 2014
Electronic recording of documents in Grundy County, Tenn., is now available through Simplifile, the nation’s largest e-recording service, providing customers with a faster, more efficient method for land document recording.
“I am a firm believer that as a public servant, we should strive daily to make the office of Register of Deeds the best that it can be, for the land owners and those that represent them. I see e-recording as the ‘next big thing’ in improving recording in Grundy County,” said Grundy County Register of Deeds Gayle Vanhooser.
With e-recording available, recording customers such as title companies, banks, and attorneys will be able to electronically scan, upload, submit and track the status of documents sent to the county for recording via the Internet. Once the register of deeds’ office receives the documents online, they can then quickly record and return them back to the submitter through Simplifile.
“The Grundy County land owners will benefit from e-recording in multiple ways,” Vanhooser said. “First, the check and balance system that our computer vendor has put into place will assure that all e-recorded documents will be accurately recorded. Accuracy is one of the most important factors in the recording process. Second, the land owners and those that represent our land owners will find that in a real estate closing or loan closing, documents can be recorded within a matter of minutes versus the three or four-day process that was involved with mailing the documents and then waiting on the return mail.”
“Even with overnight service, this could still mean several days in time savings at that most crucial time of closing on a real estate sale or loan closing,” she added. “My goal is to always provide the best possible service for the land owners of Grundy County, and I hope that offering this service will help with the recording process for our customers.”
Other benefits of e-recording include fewer payment errors, increased document security, and less overall paper waste.
Grundy County is the 21st Tennessee e-recording county to adopt Simplifile’s e-recording service.
