MARION COUNTY, Mo. (PRWEB) April 03, 2014
Marion County, Mo., has implemented electronic recording (e-recording) of documents through Simplifile, the largest e-recording service provider in the nation, allowing document filers to utilize a more convenient, cost effective recording method via the Internet.
“I wanted Marion County to be brought up with the current technology that is out there,” said Marion County Recorder of Deeds Janet Dearing. “The main convenience is how quickly a document can be filed as opposed to sending it in the mail. If there is an error in the document, we can reject it and the sender can fix the document and send it back for recording - all in a matter of a few hours. Otherwise, it has to be sent back and forth in the mail. There are also time-sensitive documents that are overnighted to us. E-Recording will greatly reduce the cost of sending those documents.”
Using Simplifile’s web-based service, document submitters ranging from title companies, banks, lien filers, to attorneys, and other organizations, can securely scan or upload and send documents to the recorder’s office directly from their computer or work site, eliminating mailing costs and paper waste.
“It is also more convenient for our document filers that are out of town,” Dearing added.
Simplifile’s service also enables customers to forego writing and mailing checks to the recorder’s office as they can securely process payments to reconcile recording fees electronically via electronic funds transfer when they e-record.
“E-Recording not only speeds up the entire recording process, it’s also a greener way to do business, decreasing excessive paper waste and fuel that is needed to physically drive documents to and from the recorder’s office,” said Paul Clifford, president of Simplifile. “It’s the most efficient technology counties can provide to their recording customers.”
Marion County joins 48 other e-recording counties throughout the state of Missouri, in addition to the nearly 1,060 total e-recording jurisdictions that make up Simplifile’s nationwide network.
