Lexington County, S.C (PRWEB) January 06, 2014
Lexington County has implemented electronic recording (e-recording) of land documents with Simplifile, the nation’s largest e-recording service provider, making it easier and more cost-effective for customers to record deeds, mortgages, and other types of documents electronically.
“E-Recording will have a huge cost-saving impact for the county as well as the legal community,” said Lexington County Register of Deeds Debra Gunter. “All documents that can be recorded in paper form are eligible to be recorded electronically.”
Attorneys, title companies, banks, and other organizations that record documents in Lexington County can save a significant amount of time and money, along with the county, by reducing paper wastes, mailing expenses, and no longer having to spend money on fuel to travel to the county for recording.
With Simplifile’s service, the county’s customers simply scan, upload and submit their documents, enabling the county to receive them electronically, review, stamp, record and return them back to the submitter through Simplifile in minutes.
“Without a doubt, e-recording is the fastest, most efficient way to record documents,” said Paul Clifford president of Simplifile.
According to Gunter, the county hopes to increase their percentage of e-recorded documents.
“Every document recorded electronically is a savings for Lexington County taxpayers,” Gunter said.
Lexington County is the fifth South Carolina county to offer e-recording through Simplifile, joining Beaufort, Greenville, Horry, and Richland counties.
“Simplifile is an excellent company to work with, and we are very excited about our working relationship,” Gunter added.
