Landmark Title now records documents with Smith County, TX by e-recording technology system.
What is E-Recording?
E-Recording, or electronic document recording, is the process of transmitting real property documents electronically to the local government entity charged with recording and maintaining public records. The county receives the documents electronically for processing. Documents are reviewed by the county. After the document has been reviewed and approved, the document is processed, stamped, and officially recorded with the county.
What are the benefits of e-recordings?
- A faster turnaround.
- The documents never leave the title company for recording. This cuts down on misplacing documents and documents recorded in the wrong counties.
- Potential cost savings in postage and overnight shipping.
- Fewer rejections and faster corrections: E-Recording eliminates rejections for incorrect fees. Rejected documents can be resubmitted in hours vs. days.
