E-Recording Now Available in New York City

November 19, 2013

Simplifile, an electronic recording service provider, announced that customers may submit documents for e-recording in New York City, enabling faster, more cost-effective recording for both local and national document submitters.

“We are excited to start e-recording in New York City and know our customers have been equally anxious for this announcement,” said Paul Clifford, president of Simplifile.

Title companies, banks, attorneys, lien filers and other organizations who submit documents to New York City boroughs including Brooklyn, Bronx, Kings, Manhattan, New York and Queens now have the option to electronically send their documents for recording through Simplifile’s online service.

Simplifile e-recording in New York City will begin as a piloting phase, initially limiting the number of submitters and document types.

“We’re grateful for the opportunity to be working with New York City and its boroughs to kick things off with this initial piloting phase, and we look forward to expanding the number of document types for our customers,” Clifford said.

With e-recording available, customers will be able to save money on paper, postage, fuel, and other expenses that come with traditional, paper document recording. It also provides a faster, more convenient option, as customers are able to send and receive recorded documents via the Internet, instead of using the mail, a courier service, or travelling to the recording office to submit documents.

New York City’s boroughs join 12 other recording jurisdictions in the state who have implemented Simplifile’s e-recording service including Nassau, Saratoga, Erie and Westchester counties.
