Alaska Launches Electronic Recording

August 2, 2012

The Anchorage District Recorder’s Office has begun electronically recording land record documents such as deeds, mortgages and reconveyances on a limited basis.

Over the next several months, additional recording districts will begin e?recording.

E-recording is expected to simplify and accelerate all aspects of the recording process and dramatically improve the Recorder’s Office ability to serve its customers.

“We are continually evaluating ways to improve the quality of our services for those that we serve,” said state recorder Vicky Backus.

According to Backus, e?recording is not only cost effective, but it also eliminates trips to the recorder’s office and expedites the recording workflow process.

E?recording customers will have the ability to record and track the status of documents from the convenience of their offices, using a standard web browser, she said.

The recorder’s office is working with Simplifile, a private vendor, to provide this new service.
