Why eRecord?

From the Clerk's side, the answer is easy – efficiency. E-Recording insures direct filing without waiting in lines; insures that your record is made available online faster, and no last minute rush to the Clerk's office. If it is more efficient for us, it is more efficient for filers.

Filing electronically and using electronic documents provide the following advantages as well as many others:

  1. Reduces costs of paper and postage.
  2. Safer transmittal of documents to the Clerk's office.
  3. With the use of an escrow account, there is no need to write checks.
  4. The Clerk's office becomes transparent, the submitter knows exactly when the document is submitted and filed.
  5. If there is any problem with a document that prevents it from being filed, the Clerk's office will return the document to the submitter electronically with a specific reason given as to why the document could not be filed.
  6. The document is accessible instantly online.
