Maryland Now E-recording Statewide with SimplifilePROVO, Utah, – Mar. 25, 2019
Simplifile, a leading provider of real estate document collaboration and recording technologies for lenders, settlement agents and counties, today announced that St. Mary’s County, Md., has adopted its e-recording service. With this addition, Maryland has become the 10th state in the Simplifile network to implement e-recording statewide.
“2019 has already been a banner year for Simplifile, with the addition of our 1,900th jurisdiction and statewide e-recording in Nevada,” said Simplifile President Paul Clifford. “Now, we’re thrilled to announce that Maryland has joined the select group of states that have modernized their document recording services statewide with Simplifile, and as the year progresses, we hope to see additional states follow suit to deliver process efficiency and cost savings to their constituents.”
In 2015, Baltimore County became the first Maryland county to adopt Simplifile’s e-recording service. Baltimore County began using Simplifile as part of the Baltimore County Circuit Court’s e-recording pilot, which was created for recording customers to conveniently and securely e-record land record documents, expediting the turnaround time for recorded documents and reducing overall paper and mailing expenses. With the addition of St. Mary’s County, all 24 Maryland counties now e-record with Simplifile.
Simplifile’s e-recording platform enables recording offices throughout Maryland to electronically receive, stamp, record and return documents within minutes, while settlement agents can submit recording fees and other recording-related expenses directly through system.
Simplifile is the largest e-recording network in the U.S., with more than 1,900 jurisdictions nationwide e-recording on the platform. In addition to Maryland, nine other states offer statewide e-recording through Simplifile, including Alaska, Arizona, Colorado, Delaware, Hawaii, Iowa, Massachusetts, Nevada and Oregon.
