A training session was held at Stoddard County Recorder Kay Asbell’s office Wednesday morning for a new e-Recording software that provides for filing warranty deeds and deeds of trust by e-mail. Asbell said the service did not cost the county and was being provided by Mobilis Technologies of Blue Springs, Mo. (near Kansas City). The home office of Mobilis is in Houston, Texas. Those using the service pay fees for electronically filing these documents with the county recorder’s office. Asbell said the documents are sent via computer to her office and those sending the documents receive a response that the records were received.
Around 15 representatives of several abstract and title companies, financial institutions and recorders from Butler and Scott County were on hand for the training. Stacy Atkison, senior account manager with Mobilis, conducted the training for the e-Recording software. Atkinson said the documents are received “immediately” by the recorder’s office and that 27 counties in Missouri are currently participating. He said the service provides a convenience for those living in other areas who previously have had to mail the documents. Asbell said she attended a previous training on the electronic service in Scott County and decided it would be a good service to offer in Stoddard County.
