Recording Frequently Asked Questions

Which counties are closed?
You may find a list of COVID-19-affected counties on this page.

What does county closure mean?
The COVID-19-related closure may mean that the county has stopped processing of physical (paper) recordings, e-recordings, or both. Where possible, we'll do our best to provide information on what closures in specific counties mean to you. If the county has stopped processing of e-recordings, it may be possible to still submit documents into the e-recording system for review once the county opens again. Wherever possible, Simplifile will continue to deliver documents to e-recording systems as soon as possible.

If I can't physically record a document, can I still e-record a document?
In some cases, the answer is yes. Some counties are choosing to only allow e-recording out of public safety concerns. If you are not a current Simplifile customer, we encourage you to explore using our services during this time to see the advantages e-recording offers.

If I can't e-record, can I still physically record a document?
In most cases, the answer will be no. Where counties have stopped processing of e-recordings, they have typically stopped processing of physical (land) recordings as well.

If I can't e-record or physically record in person, how do I get my document recorded?
Wherever possible, Simplifile will continue to deliver submitted documents to county e-recording systems for processing as soon as the county re-opens. Due to the uncertainty caused by county closures nationwide, we cannot determine how long a delay might be in individual cases.

Do all counties accept documents notarized by remote online notarization (RON) for recording?
No. While 23 states have adopted RON legislation, and several more have authorized RON during the coronavirus emergency, there are varying degrees of acceptance at the county. Simplifile’s research shows that less than half of our counties will accept RON-signed documents. Of course, this a changing situation under the current emergency. More information on e-notarization, including RON, can be found on our E-notary FAQ.

Once a county reopens, will it process my recording in the order it was submitted?
Wherever possible, Simpifile will ensure that documents are delivered to counties in the order they were submitted to us. Simplifile will continue to deliver documents to counties while recording is halted as long as the county e-recording services allows us to do so. If the county e-recording service has been deactivated as well, Simplifile will deliver documents to the county once it re-opens in the order in which these documents were submitted within Simplifile.

How long will it take for my document to get recorded once the county reopens?
Due to the uncertainty caused by county closures nationwide, we cannot determine how long a delay might be in individual cases at this time.

Can I get my document returned to me before it gets recorded at the county?
Documents may or may not be delivered to counties while recording has been halted, depending on the county's decision to leave their e-recording services open or not. Whether or not a document has been transmitted to a county during any related outage period may complicate any request to get the document returned to you. We encourage you to attempt recalling any packages you are interested in getting returned to you via our Package Recall process.
