TOWN OF WESTPORT, Conn. (PRWEB) February 17, 2014
The Town of Westport has made electronic recording (e-recording) of land documents available to customers through Simplifile, the nation’s largest e-recording service provider.
“We decided to start e-recording to accommodate the recording needs of our customers,” said Westport Town Clerk Patricia Strauss. “Recording documents are received from all over the United States. Over the past few years, I have received many inquiries requesting if and when this service would be available.”
Through Simplifile’s web-based service, customers such as title companies, banks, attorneys, lien filers, and other document submitters, can quickly scan or upload documents and submit them to the town clerk’s office for paperless recording in minutes.
“It streamlines the process, eliminates paper, and seems to be very efficient,” Strauss added.
Instead of waiting days or weeks for documents to be recorded and returned by mail, customers can have their documents stamped, recorded, and returned in minutes by e-recording.
Recording fees and payments can also be processed securely and electronically through Simplifile using Automated Clearing House (ACH), eliminating the need to write and mail checks to clerk's office.
“It’s exciting to see more and more recording jurisdictions like the Town of Westport open their doors to e-recording, and we know that they, along with their customers, will be happy with the efficiency and cost-savings this technology brings,” said Paul Clifford, president of Simplifile.
Strauss said this year she also hopes to spread the word that “Westport is open for e-recording business.”
Connecticut now has a total of nine recording jurisdictions offering Simplifile’s e-recording service.
