If the document has a problem, requiring a rejection, it could take several days to complete via mail. In the case of e-recording it can be resolved within an hour.
SHELBY COUNTY, Mo. (PRWEB) April 08, 2015
Shelby County is now accepting electronic documents for recording through Simplifile, the nation’s largest e-recording service, providing customers with a faster, more efficient online recording method.
E-recording is the method of submitting, receiving, and processing documents such as land records for recording online, which are otherwise submitted by mail, runner, or courier service.
“I want to offer the people of Shelby County fast and efficient service when they are trying to buy property and have documents released,” said Shelby County Recorder of Deeds Audrey Buzzard. “Many times a document presented for recording will come from another county or state. If the document has a problem, requiring a rejection, it could take several days to complete via mail. In the case of e-recording it can be resolved within an hour.”
Using Simplifile’s web-based service, customers such as title companies, banks, and legal offices can electronically prepare or scan and upload documents and send them securely through Simplifile directly to Buzzard’s office.
“Many of the recorders in surrounding counties are also beginning to e-record,” Buzzard added.
Shelby County is the 60th Missouri county to adopt Simplifile’s e-recording service, joining more than 1,200 recording jurisdictions nationwide that e-record with Simplifile.
Recording fees and payments can also be processed securely through Simplifile, eliminating check-writing expenses and reducing payment errors.
“E-recording streamlines the recording process for counties and their customers,” said Paul Clifford, president of Simplifile. “We’re excited for Shelby County to have this convenient, cost-effective recording technology.”
High-speed Internet access, a PC, and a scanner are the minimum requirements for customers to begin e-recording with Simplifile.
