Implementation of our new, state-of-the-art comprehensive Clerk and Recorder software system is now complete, and on "soft launch" until January 13, 2014. Benefits of the new system include:
- Denver's repository of recorded documents are now available online to the public.
- Recorded documents are searchable online through an electronic index.
- Documents can be submitted for e-recording online through third-party vendors, with quick turnaround.
- Copies of recorded documents can be purchased online.
- The system will accept online payment by credit/debit card or escrow account.
- Marriage and civil union license applicants can fill out applications online.
A strategic initiative of the Clerk and Recorder is to promote electronic document recording (e-recording) over traditional paper recordings. A key benefit of transitioning to e-recordings is the quick return of recorded documents. Documents are recorded and returned to customers by email now within hours instead of within days.
Scanning of the historical repository of Denver's recorded documents has been a massive, ongoing project, begun in 2008. Initially, the online collection consists of documents from 1964 to the present. As scanning of older documents progresses, additional records will be placed online. We will make announcements as new groups of records are added to the digital repository and become available online.
