Utah-headquartered Simplifile, a provider of real estate document collaboration and recording technologies for lenders, settlement agents, and counties announced that Mineral County in Nevada has adopted its e-recording service. With this addition, Nevada has become the ninth state in the Simplifile network to implement e-recording across the state.
“Simplifile welcomes Nevada to the growing roster of states that have embraced e-recording throughout all of their recording jurisdictions,” said Paul Clifford, President, Simplifile. “While e-recording is available in most major metropolitan areas, jurisdictions of all sizes can benefit tremendously from the efficiency and cost-savings e-recording provides. We commend Nevada’s commitment to improving document recording services through technology and hope this can serve as an example to jurisdictions throughout the nation.”
In 2007, Carson City County became the first Nevada county to join Simplifile’s e-recording network. With the addition of Mineral County, all 17 Nevada counties now e-record with Simplifile.
Using Simplifile’s e-recording platform, recording offices throughout the state are able to electronically receive, stamp, record and return documents within minutes, which reduces documentation and processing errors. Settlement agents can also submit recording fees and other recording-related expenses directly through the Simplifile system, thus eliminating check-writing expenses.
More than 1,887 jurisdictions nationwide e-record with Simplifile, making it the largest e-recording network in the U.S. Nevada joins Alaska, Arizona, Colorado, Delaware, Hawaii, Iowa, Massachusetts, and Oregon in offering e-recording statewide through Simplifile.
The company was founded in 2000 to connect settlement agents and county recorders via its e-recording service. Today, Simplifile has broadened its services to include collaboration tools and post-closing visibility for mortgage lenders and settlement agents working together on real estate documents.
