New York State Land Title Association’s First eRecording Symposium Held in NYC
NEW YORK, NY: On Tuesday, December 4th, Westchester County Clerk Timothy C. Idoni joined his colleagues from New York City and Rockland County as panelists at the New York State Land Title Association’s first Electronic Recording Symposium held at New York University’s Kimmel Center. Idoni fielded questions from title industry and real estate professionals about the legislation he championed which made electronic recording of land records, such as deeds and mortgage, permissible under New York State law earlier this year.
“As electronic recording has moved from an idea to a reality in Westchester County, I am even more confident that we will capture monetary and time savings for our customers as well as our taxpayers,” shared Idoni, whose office was able to record the first document electronically in New York State on September 24th. “After 328 years of requiring paper submissions, our office is now offering our customers the opportunity to record documents more quickly, eliminate the possibility of time-consuming financial rejections, and eliminate the cost of postage and handling,” continued Idoni.
Idoni was joined on a panel of recording officers by Rockland County Clerk Paul Piperato, whose office began eRecording on the same day as Westchester County, as well as New York City Register Annette Hill whose office will begin electronic recording in 2013. Rounding out the panel was John Aveni, Supervising Attorney for the New York State Office of Information Technology Services.
