The recorder's office is responsible for maintaining real property documents in Pinal County.
On July 3, 2015 new standardized fees took effect as listed below:
All Deeds of Conveyance = $15.00 (any deed that transfers, conveys, or affects an interest in real property)
All Deeds of Trust or Mortgage = $25.00
All Releases of Deeds of Trust or Mortgage = $10.00
These new standardized fees are set at a flat rate and include any previous fees that were charged for extra pages, postage and handling. These fees apply to documents whether they are submitted in the office, through mail or through e-recording.
The following additional fees still apply:
Affidavit of Value = $2.00
Each additional indexing category on the same document = $3.00
Each additional transaction on the same document
All other documents = $10.00 for the first five pages, $1.00 for each additional page
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.
Each recording fee includes a $1 postage charge for processing a document to be returned by mail. This fee can be waived if arrangements are made to pick up the document in person.
• Each document submitted for recording should have a title or caption that briefly explains its nature. (For example: warranty deed, quit claim deed).
• Documents should be submitted on white paper no larger than 8.5x14 and no smaller than 8.5x11. The font should be no smaller than 10 point, and dark ink should be used.
• Originals or certified copies of originals should be submitted for recording.
• Signatures should be original, or carbon copies of originals.
• If an instrument is modifying a previously recorded instrument, it must state the date of recordation and the book and page number of the original instrument.
• The first page should have a top margin of 2 inches. This is reserved for recording and return address information. In the top 3.5 inches of the document, on the left side, the name of the person who requested the recording can be given, along with the name and address to which the document should be returned.
• Subsequent margins should be at least ½ inch on the top, sides, and bottom.
• Every deed of conveyance of real property must be signed by the grantor and must be duly acknowledged.
• The grantee’s name and address should be given on the deed, unless exempt.
• If a document is evidencing a transfer of real property, it must be accompanied by an affidavit of property value form. This form is available on the Arizona Department of Revenue webpage.
• If claiming an exemption from the affidavit of property value, an exemption code should be on the face of the deed. A list of codes is on the back of the affidavit of property value form.
• The affidavit of property value form must be signed by both the buyer and the seller. This form must be acknowledged.
