PROVO, Utah, Aug. 30, 2016 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — Simplifile, a leading provider of real estate document collaboration and recording technologies for lenders, settlement agents, and counties, today announced the addition of five county recording offices across California, New Mexico, and Washington to its e-recording network, the nation’s largest.
“Simplifile makes it easy for both settlement agents and counties to experience the efficiency and cost benefits of switching from paper to e-recording — which is why our network is not just the largest, but also the fastest-growing in the country,” said Paul Clifford, president of Simplifile. “For example, we tailor our services to meet the unique needs of each county, whether that means creating a custom integration with the county’s land record management system or interfacing with another county office, like the assessor or treasurer.”
The recently added counties are:
- Napa County, Calif.
- Sonoma County, Calif.
- Tehama County, Calif.
- Quay County, N.M.
- Jefferson County, Wash.
To begin submitting land records electronically in these counties, settlement agents need only a computer with high-speed internet access and a scanner.
Using Simplifile’s web-based e-recording service, settlement agents can scan, upload, and submit documents directly to the county for recording. In as little as a few minutes, the county recorder can review, stamp, record, and return documents to the settlement agent electronically. Simplifile also enables settlement agents and county recorders to reduce payment errors and eliminate check-writing costs by processing recording fees and associated payments through its secure service.
To date, 1,481 county recording offices throughout the United States use Simplifile to e-record deeds, mortgages, and other documents. Visit https://simplifile.com/e-recording-counties/ for a current list of all the recording offices in Simplifile’s network.
Simplifile, the nation’s largest e-recording network, was founded in 2000 to connect settlement agents and county recorders via its e-recording service. Today Simplifile has broadened its services to include collaboration tools and post-closing visibility for mortgage lenders and settlement agents working together on real estate documents. Through Simplifile, users can securely record, share, and track documents, data, and fees with ease.
