July 19, 2016

Simplifile, a provider of real estate document collaboration and recording technologies for lenders, settlement agents and counties, expanded its electronic recording network with the addition of 23 county recording offices across the South and Midwest. The new counties are located in Georgia, Indiana, Kansas, Michigan, Missouri, North Carolina, North Dakota, Ohio, Texas and Virginia.

“Recording offices all over the nation are embracing e-recording as a means of increasing productivity, speeding up turnaround times and reducing costs,” said Paul Clifford, president of Simplifile. “Much of the progress we’ve made in growing our e-recording network in the South and Midwest can be attributed to the success stories shared by early adopters in these regions. We expect to see many more counties in these areas join their peers before the year is out.”

Newly added counties include:

  • Banks County, Ga.
  • Catoosa County, Ga.
  • Dade County, Ga.
  • Washington County, Ga.
  • Cass County, Ind.
  • Martin County, Ind.
  • Parke County, Ind.

Settlement service providers in these jurisdictions can now submit scanned documents directly to the county recording office using Simplifile’s secure, web-based e-recording service. The county recorder can review, stamp, record and return the documents to the settlement service provider electronically. Recording fees and associated payments can also be processed securely through the Simplifile service, reducing payment errors and eliminating costs associated with check-based payments.

More than 1,450 county recording offices throughout the United States now record deeds, mortgages and other documents electronically using Simplifile.
