CSC eRecording

Get your documents recorded as soon as possible in order to reduce claims

As the nation's largest eRecording network, CSC can help you eliminate paper from the recording process and automate time-consuming workflows. CSC's eRecording solutions help agents record real estate documents electronically (often within minutes), track submitted documents, address rejected recordings quickly, verify recordation, and maintain electronic records.

With eRecording, digital documents are prepared using standardized XML data, with digital and digitized signatures and notaries embedded and electronic payment advices attached. Documents that originate on paper, such as loan closing documents, are scanned and placed into their proper recording order. When fully integrated, the electronic document recording process takes only seconds!

FNF National Agency Website

The National Agency Website is the portal to all the Agent Success Tools and provides access to our systems Applications. These systems, include two different Rate Calculators depending on the need. We offer a National Rate Calculator for our Agents, Attorneys and REALTOR® customers to estimate the potential settlement-related title costs for residential real estate transactions. For Lenders, we offer the Title & Settlement Rate Quote Calculator to aid in their completion of the Loan Estimate and Closing Disclosure. Both of these calculators are available on the Agents Success Tools page.
