ICE Mortgage Technology Offers eRecording Service to All Georgia Counties
Borrowers and Lenders in Georgia to Benefit from Less Expensive and More Efficient Experience
PLEASANTON, Calif. – April 20, 2022 – Simplifile® by ICE Mortgage TechnologyTM, part of Intercontinental Exchange, Inc. (NYSE: ICE), a leading global provider of data, technology and market infrastructure, today announced that it enables land record documents to be recorded electronically in all 159 Georgia counties – resulting in cost and time savings benefits.
“With Simplifile, we offer a truly differentiated digital platform that will bring all counties in Georgia another step closer towards a true digital mortgage experience,” said Nancy Alley, Vice President of Product Strategy at ICE Mortgage Technology. “We are thrilled that all counties in Georgia are going to see the value technology brings and will allow title companies throughout the country to offer added efficiencies.”
The previous manual process required submitters to count pages to calculate recording fees, pay fees with checks, and then deliver the paper documents to the county which can take several days. eRecording automatically estimates the fees based on the uploaded image and transmits the document to the county in seconds saving submitters time and money.
Simplifile provides a secure, collaborative platform to connect lenders, settlement agents and counties pre-closing through post-closing, e-recording, fees and documents. Backed by ICE’s global resources, ICE Mortgage Technology reaches almost every mortgage in the U.S. by combining the native automation of Encompass® with the e-collaboration and e-recording capabilities of Simplifile®, along with the national electronic registry for nearly 90% of the U.S. mortgage market in MERS.
