The ability to e-record not only makes things run more smoothly at the county offices, it also saves a lot of time and money for the customers.
BENTON COUNTY, Minn. (PRWEB) March 18, 2013
Two Minnesota counties, Benton County and Cottonwood County, have launched electronic recording (e-recording) through Simplifile, the nation’s largest and fastest-growing network of e-recording services.
The ability to e-record enables document submitters including title companies, banks, attorneys, and lien filers to electronically send land documents such as deeds and mortgages to the counties’ recording offices, eliminating mail costs and courier fees, among other benefits.
“Over half of the counties in Minnesota have adopted e-recording with Simplifile and we are excited to welcome Benton and Cottonwood counties to the fold,” said Paul Clifford, president of Simplifile. “The ability to e-record not only makes things run more smoothly at the county offices, it also saves a lot of time and money for the customers.”
E-Recording allows the county and its submitters to process land documents for recording via the Internet, which accelerates the entire recording process and provides a more convenient, secure submission method without having to mail or deliver documents to the counties in person.
In addition to Benton and Cottonwood counties, e-recording was also made available in Waseca, Polk, and Lake of the Woods counties in Minnesota earlier this month.
