Simplifile Expands E-Recording Availability in McDowell County, North Carolina

Technology is advancing and moving forward...this is going to be the future. Coming on board was a way to advance in our office and please many clients that are not able to travel to our county.

Simplifile has expanded its network of e-recording counties in North Carolina, announcing the addition of McDowell County as its newest e-recording jurisdiction. With Simplifile’s service available, McDowell County can now receive and record electronic documents from both local and national document submitters, providing a faster, cost-effective, and more convenient recording option.

“The reason I chose to implement e-recording in McDowell County was we wanted the convenience to be brought to the people we serve,” said Tonia Hampton, McDowell County register of deeds. “Technology is advancing and moving forward. Hard-back books and temporary indexes being a thing of the past, this is going to be the future. Coming on board was a way to advance in our office and please many clients that are not able to travel to our county to process a document.”

Hampton also acknowledged e-recording provides faster turnaround of recorded documents and reduces errors and postage.

“The goals I seek to achieve within this year are to make the transaction as easy as possible for all customers,” Hampton said. “I hope to see local attorneys as well as large corporations use the e-filing service. If I can eliminate a customer from waiting in line, as busy as our daily lives have become, I will have accomplished my goal. If I save our county tax payers from paying senseless postage, I will have accomplished my goal. Exceeding the goals of the public is my priority.”

Hampton shared that she had learned about e-recording back in its early stages and knew that if she was elected register of deeds, “this would be one of my first accomplishments,” she said.

McDowell County is the 26th North Carolina county to begin e-recording with Simplifile.
