Recording Fees
If an instrument does not meet the requirements, the Register of Deeds will charge the $25 non-standard fee. However, if an instrument fails to meet the font size requirements, but is determined by the Register to be legible, it may be recorded without the non-standard fee.

To record a deed, the fee is $26 for the first fifteen pages and $4 for each additional page.

A deed of trust or mortgage is $56 for the first fifteen pages and $4 for each additional page.

Multiple instruments in one document will be $10 each.

Additional subsequent instrument index references are $25.

The current North Carolina excise tax stamps are $1 per $500 or fraction thereof of the value of the property conveyed. It is the duty of the person presenting the instrument to report the correct amount of tax due.

Cash or checks are acceptable methods of payment. A self-addressed stamped envelope should accompany documents.
