Standardized platform

Simplifile is a standardized platform for document delivery, recording eligibility, and settlement agent coordination for all closing types — ink, hybrid, and fully “e.” Settlement agents no longer need to worry about multiple closing system logins to review closing instructions and documents or connect to the eClose platform.

Settlement agent and notary success

Simplifile’s focus on setup, training and support of settlement agents and notaries ensures that each transaction can be expertly completed. Simplifile closing is free for settlement agents and notaries.

Real-time county eEligibility

As lenders evaluate investor and underwriter acceptance, it’s essential to know if eNotarized documents will be accepted by the county. Simplifile eEligibility provides real-time guidance on recordability of eNotarized documents.


Simplifile provides transparency throughout the closing process. From order pick up notifications to real-time borrower eSign status, every part of the transaction is visible.

Streamlined access

Simplifile gives streamlined visibility into transactions through direct links and QR codes for quick transaction status.

Operational efficiencies

From ink package uploads to an in-person electronic notarization (IPEN) solution and coordination of remote online notarization (RON) transactions, Simplifile streamlines the closing process.

Post closing efficiencies

Trailing documents, including ink-signed package, recordings, actual recording fees for quick reconciliation, and final title policies are tracked and returned electronically.


Easily save time and money by recording all of your documents online with Simplifile, the nation’s largest eRecording network. After county review and approval, documents are quickly stamped and recorded for public record. Say goodbye to mail and trips to the courthouse.

Trustee services

Use one of our trusted trustee partners or bring your own. Each of your documents are automatically routed electronically within Simplifile to your specified trustee in each state. Trustees sign reconveyances, which are routed back to you to submit to the county.

County requirements validation

With Simplifile, never worry about tracking which counties require a tax ID, legal description, cover sheet, or witnesses. Simplifile tracks county requirements and only requires them when the county needs them.

Power of attorney tracking

Keep track of counties that require a power of attorney (POA). Create and record multiple packages with minimal effort. Later, when creating an assignment, the POA recording information will be added to the document for recording.
