Jackson County, Kan. (PRWEB) June 17, 2013
Simplifile’s e-recording service is now available in Jackson County, Kan., where Register of Deeds Tammy Moulden is encouraging both local and out of state customers to take advantage of the faster, more efficient document recording option.
E-Recording is an electronic recording process where document submitters scan, upload and submit documents such as deeds and mortgages through a secure, web-based service like Simplifile, to recording jurisdictions all over the country. The documents are electronically received, stamped, recorded and returned back to the submitter usually within minutes, an exponentially faster turnaround time compared to using the mail or a courier service.
Moulden, who was introduced to e-recording a few years ago at a seminar, said they decided to enable e-recording in Jackson County to “keep up with times and technology.”
“This was a ‘new frontier’ to embark upon,” Moulden said. “Want to make it convenient for outside agencies and locals to file and would love for most of them to be able to take advantage of e-recording.
Moulden also acknowledged that their office will still take equal care of customers who choose to continue submitting paper documents, but that customers will find many more benefits by e-recording.
“The benefits associated with e-recording are many. For example, customers can quickly retrieve submitted documents and eliminate waiting for them to be mailed back,” Moulden said. “Out of state customers will truly benefit with e-recording, as it cuts down on the wait time to receive stamped and timed documents while cutting down on the wait time and postage fees.
Other benefits of e-recording include increased document security, less fuel for traveling to and from the county, and fewer rejections and payment errors.
“Simplifile really just makes the whole recording process easier for both the customers and the county,” said Paul Clifford, president of Simplifile. “Making what is often a lengthy, time-consuming process into a simple, quick and automated transaction has made a lasting impact in the industry. More and more title companies, banks, and attorneys have switched to e-recording and are anxious for all 3600 U.S. counties to make it available.”
Approximately one-fourth of the nation’s recording jurisdictions have adopted e-recording with Simplifile and that number continues to grow daily.
