Minnesota expands Simplifile e-recording in Houston County

If something is wrong with a document that causes my office to reject, the submitter can fix the document and resend it immediately back to us.

Houston County has adopted electronic recording (e-recording) of documents through Simplifile, the nation’s largest e-recording service, giving customers a faster, more cost-effective recording option online.

“There is a big push to get all counties in Minnesota e-recording and most of our district is already e-recording,” said Houston County Recorder Beverly Bauer. “Everyone says it works very well, so I thought I would trust the other recorders’ instincts and get started also.”

Using Simplifile’s secure, online service, customers such as title companies, banks, attorneys, and lien filers, can quickly scan or upload and submit documents directly to the recorder’s office and have them recorded, stamped, and returned in minutes.

“If something is wrong with a document that causes a County Office to reject, the submitter can fix the document and resend it immediately back to the recorder’s office,” Bauer added. “There is no waiting to send the document back by regular mail, have them fix the error, and then wait for its return journey back to the recorder’s office.”

According to Bauer, their office hopes to accept all abstract document types by Sept. 1.

“Simplifile is the only trusted submitter that I am using as of today and that is because everyone that I talked to recommend them to start with,” Bauer added.

Houston County joins 73 other e-recording counties in Minnesota that have adopted Simplifile’s e-recording service. Nationwide, more than 1,270 counties also e-record with Simplifile.

High-speed Internet access, a PC, and a scanner are the minimum requirements for customers to begin e-recording with Simplifile.
