It has come to our attention that some sites may be charging for forms that are actually free from your Register of Deeds office. Please contact your Register of Deeds office before purchasing forms from a third-party vendor.
I am pleased to announce that we are expanding our e-recording availability to include Simplifile. Simplifile offers a safe and trustworthy service that enables you to electronically prepare or scan, upload, and submit documents to our office for recording in minutes. E-recording securely records your documents quickly electronically avoiding mailing expense, travel, and saving your precious time. It has proven to be very beneficial for those involved in the land records industry. Payments are also made electronically eliminating the hassles of check writing. Simplifile is thrilled to provide this service to Surry County and their customers and be able to help make their day to day recording work easier. Surry County now joins 45 other counties in North Carolina and more than 1,200 nationwide who also offer services through the Simplifile system. This option comes to you at no cost to our office or to county taxpayers. All you need to get started with Simplifile is a computer with high-speed internet access and a scanner. We will, of course, continue to offer traditional recording.
If you are interested in signing up with Simplifile, please call 800-460-5667 or visit Simplifile.
