ST. LAWRENCE COUNTY, N.Y. (PRWEB) April 14, 2014
St. Lawrence County, N.Y., is now electronically recording documents through Simplifile, the nation’s largest e-recording service provider, enabling recording customers to submit documents to the clerk’s office online.
“We decided to start e-recording at the County Clerk’s Office in St. Lawrence County because it is important to keep up with the latest technology, which enables us to operate the office more efficiently and effectively,” said St. Lawrence County Clerk Mary Lou Rupp. “It will reduce mailing costs and paper waste both for our office and our customers. Customers will also benefit from the quick turnaround time since documents can be submitted and placed on record immediately.”
Instead of sending documents by mail, courier service, or driving to the clerk’s office to have documents recorded in person, customers such as title companies, banks, attorneys, and others will now have a “paperless” option to more quickly and securely record documents.
“Customers are also able to retain control of their original documents because they never leave the submitter’s possession,” Rupp added.
When documents are submitted through Simplifile for e-recording, the clerk’s office is able to review, stamp, record and return the electronic document back to the customer in minutes.
“What used to take several days or even weeks can now happen in minutes with e-recording,” said Paul Clifford, president of Simplifile. “It’s the most cost-effective, efficient way to record documents today.”
Check-writing expenses, payment errors, and rejected documents are also reduced as customers are able to more accurately prepare documents prior to submission and process recording fees via Automated Clearing House.
St. Lawrence County is New York’s 21st e-recording jurisdiction to implement Simplifile’s e-recording technology and joins more than 1,060 e-recording jurisdictions nationwide.
