What is E-Recording
E-Recording is the process of submitting documents for recording online and having them reviewed, recorded and returned back to the submitter electronically.
Send: Submitter electronically prepares or scans, uploads and submits documents through a web-based service for recording.
Receive: The Register of Deeds or recording jurisdiction receives the documents electronically for processing.
Review: The documents are reviewed by the Register of Deeds. Should they find any errors, the documents will be rejected and returned back to the submitter for correction.
Record: After the documents have been reviewed and approved, the documents will be processed, stamped and officially recorded with the Register of Deeds.
Return: The Register of Deeds returns the stamped, recorded document back to the submitter electronically, notifying them that the documents have been recorded.
E-Recording is available for all document types in Calhoun County utilizing our vendor, Simplifile. This process includes Warranty Deeds which require County Treasurer Tax Certification.
Most documents are recorded within a few hours of receipt unless Tax Certification is required at which time the documents are sent electronically to the County Treasurer for review.
