eRecording allows financial institutions, law firms and other businesses involved in real estate transactions to submit documents electronically for recording. Recorded documents are returned faster than waiting to receive them back through the mail in 7-10 business days. Watch this short video to learn more about the eRecording process.
Our recording hours are 8:30am – 4:30pm, Monday – Friday minus County Holidays. It is important to submit documents with your vendor before 3:00pm to ensure recording in the same business day.
Vendors act as a secure courier service to and from Sedgwick County’s recording system. Each vendor has their own interface and fee schedule. It is recommended by the Sedgwick County Register of Deeds for customers to contact all 3 vendors to determine which Vendor will work best for their organization. If you would like to take advantage of recording documents electronically, contact one of these vendors:
Wayne Crabtree Email: firstname.lastname@example.org

Lisa Norris, Office Manager
Phone: (816) 295-1540
Phone: (800) 460-5657 Ext. 1037
All customers must have an agreement in place with an approved vendor. Only original documents can be used to create the electronic document. Scanned images must be legible and reproducible. Be diligent in ensuring that documents submitted for Electronic Recording are checked before submission for errors, omissions, scanning defects, illegible areas, and other deficiencies that would affect the Recorder’s ability to record the document and the public notice to be created.
Sufficient space is needed for the electronic recording label in the top right corner of the first page.
