As of today, almost all U.S. states have passed statutes allowing for electronic or e-recording of real estate documents. We are happy to now offer an e-recording service in thousands of counties across the country.
In most cases, e-recording reduces fees and turnaround time for evidence of filing. Because we are able to get an almost immediate satisfaction of filing or rejection, there is no longer a concern that a filing office or delivery service will misplace an important document without us knowing. Postage alone on large recording projects can add significant costs – especially if those large boxes are shipped to your service provider, a local filing office, and then back to your desk.
As we’ve seen with some Secretary of State requirements, it’s not impossible to imagine a day when real estate documents are required to be electronically transmitted. Take advantage of our e-recording service and ask us if your next filing is eligible!
