Mica M. said: I love - hands down, the quickest way to record a warranty deed. The process and communication is so quick - the recording transaction too. Worth the extra $20 to me for my time! I didn't spend over an hour driving around, talking to someone via a kiosk to record the deed, didn't have to spend the energy of loading kids into the car to come with me, etc. The efficiency and timely process is worth the cost! Love having this available! The whole process via took less than 5 minutes to upload a document and less than 3 minutes to pay the invoice shortly thereafter. The final recording was in my inbox in less than an hour. Thank you!
