The Faulkner County Circuit Clerk’s office implemented electronic recording of real estate records including deeds, mortgages, liens, etc.

“E-recording is much more efficient,” Circuit Clerk Crystal Taylor said. “We are very excited to offer this technology to residents of Faulkner County.”

Before e-recording, customers would have to leave their paper documents at the clerk’s office and come back to get them the next day. Now documents can be submitted electronically.

The process is faster even for people who still bring documents to the office, Taylor said.

“With e-recording, documents are recorded within minutes,” she said. “The original document is handed immediately back to the customer after it is scanned into the system.”

The system has reduced costs, increased security for sending and receiving documents, lessened errors and shortened the time gap for records being entered.

Bart Shaw of Waco Title, who uses the e-recording often, said it has greatly improved the process. Read more.
