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.

“Recording offices all over the nation are embracing e-recording as a means of increasing productivity, speeding up turnaround times and reducing costs,” says Paul Clifford, president of Simplifile, in a release. “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.”
