eRecording at the St. Louis County Recorder of Deeds
(January 3, 2011) – The St. Louis County Recorder of Deeds, Janice Hammonds, announces that e-recording is now available at the St. Louis County Recorder of Deeds office.
St. Louis County has partnered with eRecordingPartners.net to give customers the option of electronically transmitting documents instead of delivering paper copies to the Clayton office.
Although e-recording does not replace the traditional recording method, it provides a convenient, paperless alternative, benefitting both, the customers and the environment by allowing for electronic submission of documents via internet. Document security and tracking are enhanced, and document and payment errors are reduced.
The electronic five-step workflow process (submit, receive, review, record and return) shortens the time frame from receipt to acceptance of documents, and therefore allows real estate purchases/sale transactions to be completed more quickly.
E-recording supports the Missouri statutory recording standardization requirements.
Those interested in e-recording should contact the Recorder of Deeds’ office for more information on how to get started: GSmith4@stlouisco.com.
