PROVO, Utah, Dec. 13, 2016 — Simplifile, a leading provider of real estate document collaboration and recording technologies for lenders, settlement agents, and counties, today announced the addition of eight Georgia counties and four Louisiana parishes to its e-recording network, the nation’s largest.
“We are excited to see steady growth of e-recording adoption across Georgia and Louisiana, and we will continue to work with recording offices in these states to make e-recording available to more citizens,” said Paul Clifford, president of Simplifile. The first Georgia county joined Simplifile’s e-recording network in February 2013; Louisiana’s first e-recording parish joined Simplifile’s network in August 2014. “It’s our hope that one day, every jurisdiction will enjoy the benefits of a more efficient e-recording workflow as well as the savings that come with paperless recording and payment processing.”
The new jurisdictions are:
- Bartow County, Ga.
- Bleckley County, Ga.
- Cherokee County, Ga.
- Dawson County, Ga.
- Echols County, Ga.
- Madison County, Ga.
- Polk County, Ga.
- Talbot County, Ga.

Settlement agents need only a computer with high-speed internet access and a scanner to begin submitting documents electronically in these counties.
Simplifile’s online e-recording service enables settlement agents to scan and submit land records directly to any of 1,546 participating county recording offices nationwide. In just minutes, the county recorder can review, stamp, record, and return documents to the settlement agent electronically. In addition, recording fees and associated payments can be processed directly through Simplifile’s secure service, eliminating the expense of payment errors and check-writing costs for settlement agents and county recorders.
