Alaska Expands E-Recording Availability

February 26, 2013

Alaska is now accepting documents for e-recording in Haines, Juneau, and Skagway recording districts through Simplifile.

With the availability of e-recording, organizations who submit land documents to Alaska’s district offices for recording will no longer have to submit documents by mail, runner or courier service. Through Simplifile’s online e-recording service, document submitters can electronically scan, upload, and submit their documents to the recording office. Within minutes, the recorder receives, records, and returns the documents back to the submitter, significantly reducing the recording process time and costs associated with traditional methods, according to Simplifile.

“Now that Juneau, Haines and Skagway districts are up and operational for e-recording, we are moving on to Sitka, then Ketchikan, Wrangell and Petersburg, which we hope to have completed in March,” said Alaska State Recorder Vicky Backus. “Things are progressing on schedule and we are very happy with the results.”

Alaska became the 40th state to adopt e-recording with Anchorage Recording District being the first district to open last August. There are now 11 recording districts that have made Simplifile’s e-recording service available to document submitters, covering approximately 40 percent of the state’s population.

“We’ve been working with Alaska for about seven years now,” said Josh Holmes, Simplifile’s Western states sales director. “I’m grateful to help get them up and running with e-recording and it’s exciting to see the progress and benefits that have come to fruition.”

The three new recording districts announced today cover areas including Haines Borough, Hoonah-Angoon Census Area, Juneau City and Borough and Skagway municipality.
