RE: Cover Page Requirements
As you are aware, we we recently tested a customer prepared Cover Page for use when recording documents in the Erie County Clerk's Office.
We have reviewed the comments and queries from all of the stakeholders, including attroneys, paralegals, private persons and Clerk's Office personnel. Upon consideration of the anticipated benefits measured against the concerns expressed; and after discussions with our software provider in preparation of electronic recording, this Office has determined not to implement usage of the proposed Cove Page.
Effective immediately Cover Pages for deeds, mortgages and affidavits will be prepared by this office and generated by the cashier at the time of recording.
We appreciate your efforts in submitting the new Cover Page durting the test phase and are grateful for your cooperation and feedback.
