St. Louis County Offers e-Recording

January 6, 2011

E-recording is now available at the St. Louis County Recorder of Deeds office, according to St. Louis County Recorder of Deeds Janice Hammonds.

St. Louis County has partnered with eRecordingPartners.net to give customers the option of electronically transmitting documents instead of delivering paper copies to the Clayton office.

Although e-recording does not replace the traditional recording method, it provides a convenient, paperless alternative, benefitting both, the customers and the environment by allowing for electronic submission of documents via internet.

The electronic five-step workflow process (submit, receive, review, record and return) shortens the time frame from receipt to acceptance of documents, and therefore allows real estate purchases/sale transactions to be completed more quickly, Hammonds said.

Four vendors have been approved by the county. The include ePN, Imgeo, Mobilis Technologies and Simplifile. Many different instruments are authorized for electronic transmission.

E-recording supports the Missouri statutory recording standardization requirements.
