• The title of the document should be displayed on the first page, below the 3-inch margin.

• An administrative page can be attached to the document in order to accommodate the margin requirements. If an administrative page is used, it should contain the document title, the document date, and if applicable, the grantor and grantee. This page will be considered part of the document when recorded.
