PLEASE NOTE -- A.R.S. 11-475 now requires:

A person recording a deed of trust or mortgage constructed for at least one family but not more than four families shall include "RESIDENTIAL 1-4" in the caption heading on the first page of each document. Failure to comply with this subsection does not affect the validity of the document or the validity of the recording of the document.

Document Formatting Requirements

* Documents must be prepared on white paper sixe 8.5 x 11 inches or 8.5 x 14 inches. Black ink should be used, with a minimum font size of 10 point.

* The first page should have a 2 inch top margin. This area is reserved for recorder's information. The left 3.5 inches of the top margin on the first page may be used to show the name of the person requesting recording, as well as the name and address to which the document should be returned.

* Subsequent margins should be at least .5 of an inch on the top, sides, and bottom.

* Documents must have original signatures and notary seal. Copies are not accepted.

* The document should include a caption that briefly explains the purpose of the instrument. (For example: warranty deed, quit claim deed, mortgage, etc.)

* Any instrument presented for recording that modifies the provisions of a previously recorded document must reference it by recording number in the new document being recorded.

* Documents that are creating a transfer of ownership or interest must be accompanied by an affidavit of property value form, available on the Arizona Department of Revenue webpage. If claiming an exemption, the exemption code must be noted on the face of the deed. Exemption codes are listed on the back of the affidavit of property value form.

* The affidavit of property value form must include a legal description of the real property. This includes your lot and subdivision, or the section, township, and range that describes your property. The assessor's office can provide the docket and page or fee number of your vesting deed. The assessor's parcel number is also required for the affidavit of property value form.

* The buyer and seller must both sign the affidavit of property value form. This form has to be notarized.

* The grantor listed on the deed must date and sign it before a notary, who should write or type the name of the person whom he/she is acknowledging.

* The grantee is not required to sign unless they are taking title as joint tenants with rights of survivorship or as community property with rights of survivorship.

* Exhibits or attachments included with documents must be in 10 point type or larger, and must also have margins. Exhibits and attachments must be marked (for example: 'Exhibit A') and referenced within the body of the deed. Real Estate Deeds
