A new e-filing system for deeds at the Rockingham County courthouse is poised to roll out Tuesday.
Rockingham County Circuit Court Clerk Chaz Evans-Haywood tells the Daily News-Record the change should help those who submit documents for filing in the court’s deed room using mail or couriers.
The system, using e-recording provider Simplifile, allows filing 24 hours a day through a Web-based service.
Fees will vary depending on the document submitted, Evans-Haywood said, but his office will not see the money. Simplifile keeps the fee and provides the service without charge to the clerk’s office.
Evans-Haywood said his office is evaluating options for expanding the service to other types of documents.
