Tompkins County, NY Launches Electronic Recording with eSecureFile™

HOUSTON (May 1, 2014) – PropertyInfo Corporation, a Stewart company, and leading provider of end-to-end records management solutions, has partnered with the Tompkins County Clerk to offer electronic recording services for legal documents via eSecureFile™ to the county’s submitters, including title insurance companies, lenders, financial institutions and national vendors.

“We take pride in our efforts to provide advanced technology and being environmentally friendly.   Electronic recording supports these efforts and should prove to be a tremendous benefit for our submitters and our office.  Not only is it a secure and efficient way to record documents, it saves time, money and resources. eSecureFile provides an easy and cost effective way for submitters to eRecord with our County,” said Aurora R. Valenti, County Clerk, Tompkins County NY. “We are continually looking for ways to enhance our services to our constituents while reducing costs. It’s important that we can give our customers options and flexibility when recording documents in our office,” adds Valenti.

In order to educate submitters about the benefits on eRecording, the Tompkins County Clerk’s Office is hosting a Continuing Legal Education (CLE) seminar at 222 South Cayuga Street,  Ithaca, New York 14850 on Thursday, May 1st from 12:00 to 1:00 for all members of the Tompkins County Bar Association and other local attorneys.  The title of the event is ‘The keys to unlocking the secrets of your digital County Clerk's Office and everything you ever wanted to know about e-recording!’  “We are excited that there has been such an interest in eRecording in our County and we are expecting a great turn-out for this event,” said Maureen Reynolds, Deputy County Clerk.  “Increasing eRecording volumes will save time and money for the County as well as for our submitters.” 

With eSecureFile, submitters can electronically submit land records in minutes – virtually eliminating travel time and expenses associated with visiting the local courthouse. There is no software to install and no set-up costs, which is a benefit for submitters and offers a no-risk solution. Once the submitter has signed up with eSecureFile they have the ability to eRecord into all eSecureFile counties.

“PropertyInfo is excited to add Tompkins County as another county to its network of eSecureFile customers to electronically record land records,” says Kyle Chaney, Senior Vice President of PropertyInfo’s government services division. “We are focused on expanding the eRecording geographic coverage for all of our clients, and we value our eSecureFile customers and the counties we partner with to help make this happen. It is important to provide a seamless, cost-effective solution that benefits both parties,” adds Chaney.
