Kendall Announces the addition of a new e-Recording Partner

Poughkeepsie, New York:     Dutchess County Clerk Brad Kendall today announced the addition of Simplifile for electronic recording (e-Recording) of land documents. Simplifile joins CSC as an approved submitter. Documents accepted under e-Recording include deeds, mortgages, assignments of mortgages and discharges of mortgages. eRecording provides title companies and banks with a faster, more efficient, paperless recording option.

Through the secure, web-based program County Clerk staff receive, review, record or reject, and return documents electronically.  Filers can track and view the status of their submitted documents as well as correct and resubmit any rejected documents. Recording fees and payments are also processed securely through the portal eliminating check-writing expenses and reducing payment errors.

Dutchess County Clerk Brad Kendall stated, “We are pleased to be adding Simplifile as an accepted vendor for e-Recording here in Dutchess. Since e-Recording launched in March, we have increased efficiency while providing timely service for consumers and cost-savings on deliverables. Our guiding principle is that our citizens are the most important stakeholders. The strategic partnership between the County Clerk’s Office, the Office of Central and Information Services and recording service providers has been the catalyst in this successful implementation and historic transformation.”
