In June of 2006, counties in Missouri agreed to create a portal that would allow the electronic filing of documents throughout Missouri. Currently, 90 counties in Missouri are accepting documents. This allows anyone E-Recording to go to one website to submit their documents for electronic recording, rather than visiting an individual site for each county.
Jackson County was one of the first counties to initiate electronic recording and currently over 60% of the documents recorded in Jackson County are received via electronic filing through the portal. Banks, title companies, law firms, utility companies and a number of other organizations submit their documents to Jackson County via electronic filing.
If you are interested in more information about electronic filing or have questions, please send an email to the Recorder.
