Recorder of Deeds Electronic Recording Invite 2013

Dear Lackawanna County Recording Customer: 

I am pleased to announce that the Lackawanna County Recorder of Deeds Office has initiated  electronic recording (e-recording) of land record documents with Simplifile. I invite you and your staff to attend an

e-recording kickoff meeting on Monday, April 22, 2013 at the Recorder of Deeds Office to learn how

e-recording can benefit you. Light refreshments will be served. 

When:       April 22, 2013                  10:00 a.m. – 11:00 

Where:      Lackawanna County Recorder of Deeds, Gateway Center Conference Room

135 Jefferson Ave, Scranton, PA  18503 

For organizations that submit documents to the Lackawanna County Recorder of Deeds Office via (express) mail, runner or courier service, the availability of Simplifile e-recording services means that you are able to securely and cost-effectively file documents with the county through a web browser from the comfort and convenience of your office. 

E-Recording not only saves you time and money, it also accelerates document recordings, increases your office productivity, and increases the security of documents you file with the county. As you will learn during the kickoff meeting, you probably already have the equipment you need to begin submitting documents electronically. 

Simplifile has partnered with Lackawanna County to enable document submitters like you to be among the first to take advantage of the benefits of e-recording. Simplifile representatives—including Simplifile representative, John Riddell—will be in attendance at the kickoff meeting to demonstrate the system and answer any questions you might have. In addition, my staff will present county policies and procedures for e-recording. 

To RSVP for the kickoff meeting, please contact John Riddell by email at or at (610) 931-6727 to let him know how many from your office will be in attendance. I look forward to seeing you at the meeting.
