eRecording and What it Means for You.

Posted by Chris On June 23

Winged Foot Title, LLC is proud to announce its first successful eRecording.

In keeping with our commitment to crafting exceptional…

real estate transactions through the use of the latest technology, Winged Foot Title, LLC this week became one of the first settlement service companies to begin eRecording with the Lee County Clerk of Courts.

So what in the world is an eRecording, you might be wondering? and how is it beneficial to me?

Well an eRecording is

“the process of submitting, receiving, and processing documents for recording via the Internet that have traditionally been sent to the County for recording by runner, express mail, or courier service.”

We simply

  • Scan the recordable documents (e.g., deeds, mortgages, powers of attorneys, affidavits, etc.),
  • Upload those files to the Clerk, and
  • Within very few minutes receive an electronic copy of the already recorded documents.

What does this mean for real estate professionals and their clients?

Well, our investment in eRecording technology means

  • Reduced costs,
  • Increased efficiencies, and
  • A more memorable closing experience.

A process that once took not less than a week

  • Sending the original documents via courier to the Clerk,
  • Awaiting their recording, and
  • Return to us via mail

now takes less than an hour. The cost of sending and receiving recordables is instantly reduced by 75%, a savings that is necessarily passed on to consumers.

The process is so efficient, that in most cases, your buyers can walk away from our closing table with a copy of their recorded deed and their owner’s policy of title insurance.

This gives new meaning to the term “closing.”
