Simplifile, a leading provider of real estate document collaboration and recording technologies for lenders, settlement agents, and counties, has added more than a dozen new recording jurisdictions in five states across the American Northeast to its e-recording network, the nation’s largest.
“The Northeastern United States is home to some of our nation’s oldest counties and most established recording offices, with property records dating back hundreds of years,” said Paul Clifford, president of Simplifile.
“It’s a privilege to help settlement agents and recorders in these storied jurisdictions transition to a more modern system of recording that is more efficient and less costly — both in terms of time and money — for all participants.”
The 14 new jurisdictions are:
Town of Brooklyn, Conn.
Town of Cromwell, Conn.
Town of Salisbury, Conn.
Town of Southbury, Conn.
Town of Warren, Conn.
Anne Arundel County, Md.
Queen Anne’s County, Md.
Cambria County, Pa.
Huntingdon County, Pa.
Belknap County, N.H.
Chemung County, N.Y.
Columbia County, N.Y.
Fulton County, N.Y.
Schenectady County, N.Y.
Effective immediately, settlement agents in these jurisdictions can scan and submit documents directly to the county recording office using Simplifile’s secure, web-based e-recording service. In just minutes, the county recorder can review, stamp, record, and return documents to the settlement agent using the same electronic system. Settlement agents can also pay recording fees and associated payments securely through the Simplifile service, reducing payment errors and eliminating check-writing costs.
More than 1,622 county recording offices throughout the United States now record deeds, mortgages, and other documents electronically using Simplifile. For an up-to-date list of all jurisdictions currently e-recording with Simplifile, visit https://simplifile.com/e-recording-counties.
