NTC's ExpressRetrieval.com Expands Title Access

Nationwide Title Clearing has launched ExpressRetrieval.com, an online service that allows mortgage industry professionals to place orders for vital research and retrieval of recorded real estate documents nationwide.

The company said its online service is unique in that it gives users the ability to order hard to find documents for any recording jurisdiction, usually counties, nationwide, one at a time or in bulk.

Nationwide Title Clearing first released its Express Retrieval service in the spring of 2006. The company describes the new online site as "the next evolution of this service" and it is available to the public as well as to NTC clients. It covers all 3,500 property records jurisdictions nationwide. Users can order both certified and regular copies of documents, and there are no minimum volume requirements. The service is not limited to counties that offer clerk-certified public records online.

Jeremy Pomerantz, senior vice president for NTC, said ExpressRetrieval.com represents the company's continual effort to offer services that are relevant to the industry.

"We have developed this service for our clients and to open the door for new market segments that previously had no clear avenue to easily order documents. We welcome all mortgage industry professionals to use the site to help lower their internal costs and to be able to provide a better experience for their clients."

The search methods enabled by ExpressRetrieval.com include combinations of public and private subscription based database and image repository resources, the company said.

Those subscription-based servicers often make available electronically the records of counties that do not offer direct online access to property records. Through NTC, users can access those records without having their own subscription.

If the records are not available either online directly or through a subscription, NTC can access records through phone calls to the county and sending a person physically to the recording office if necessary.

ExpressRetrieval.com also offers the ability to track an order, view the history of all orders and access images of documents retrieved. NTC provides services such as the processing of document retrieval, title searches, lien releases, assignments, final documents, imaging and loan reviews to the mortgage servicing industry.
