Document Formatting Requirements
• Use legible black print or typing in a font size of at least 12 point on white paper that is at least 8.5x11 inches and no larger than 8.5x14 inches. This is best for reproduction by microfilm or photographing. The images created and placed in the Official Records need to be legible and of the highest quality. The quality of images depends on the quality of documents presented for recording.

• Printing and typing should be legible and dark. Do not highlight text on the document, as color will show up as black on the scanned images.

• Provide a blank 3x3 inch space in the top right corner at the top of the first page. Subsequent pages should have a blank 1x3 inch space in the top right corner. These spaces are reserved for use by the clerk of court. All other margins should be at least 1 inch.

• The acknowledgment from the notary public must include the seal, expiration date, and commission number.

• The body of the instrument must be dated.

• Include the grantee’s name and address.

• On the first page, affix the name and address of the person to whom the instrument will be returned after recording.

• Signatures throughout should agree with names in the body of the instrument and should be legible and correctly spelled. Corresponding names should be printed or typed beneath all signatures. Signatures must be attested by two witnesses.

• On all instruments by which the title to real estate or any interest therein is conveyed, created, encumbered, assigned, or otherwise disposed of, include the legible printed or typed name and address of the person who prepared the instrument. Instruments executed outside the state of Florida are exempt from this requirement. This information can be given in the following format: “PREPARED BY: name and address.” This should be in the top left corner on the first page.

• The title of the document should be given after the preparer’s information, centered on the first page.

• Provide a complete legal description of the real property, including the parcel identification number assigned to the property.

• The consideration or sale price of the real property must be noted on the deed presented for recording.
