One-third of the nation’s counties now have access to e-recording software, according to the Property Records Industry Association, based in Morrisville, N.C.
Those jurisdictions cover 68% of Americans. Exactly as it sounds, e-recording is the electronic version of property record filing and management.
“In the past two years, we have witnessed a significant boost in the number of recording jurisdictions enabling e-recording in an effort to streamline their office workflows and increase both efficiencies and turnaround times for their submitters,” the association’s president, Mar Ladd, said in a press release.
Ladd also serves as vice president of regulatory and industry affairs for Simpilife, an e-records service company.
