* Use white 8.5 x 11 inch or 8.5 x 14 inch paper with legible printing or typing to help ensure an accurate reproduction. Black ink with a font size of at least 12 point should be used. Printing should be single-sided only.
* On the first page, a 3 x 3 inch blank space should be provided in the top right corner. On each subsequent page, provide a 1 x 3 inch space in the upper right hand corner. All other margins should be at least 1 inch.
* The names of all parties to a conveyance must be legibly printed or typed on the document. The marital status of male grantors should be listed on the document. Each referenced alias (AKA or NKA) counts as an additional name. Each legal entity reference counts as an additional name. Every name that appears on an affidavit will be counted every time it appears whether it is unique or not.
* A deed must be signed by the present owners.
* The grantor's signature must be acknowledged by two witnesses.
* A deed should be acknowledged by a notary public. The notary should affix their seal and the expiration date of their commission. The Recording Office does not offer notary services.

* Corresponding names should be typed, printed, or stamped beneath signatures.
* A return address for the document should be given on the first page.
* Provide the name and address of the person who prepared the document. This information should be on the first page.
* A DR-219 form is no longer required to record a deed. Either of the following still needs to be included on the deed: the sale/transfer price or amount of documentary stamp tax.
* In the event that a husband and wife own property jointly, and one becomes deceased, it is suggested that a certified copy of the Death Certificate be recorded with the Clerk's office. A copy will be forwarded to the Property Appraiser, who will subsequently change the tax roll to show the survivor as sole owner.
* Provide blank spaces for the property appraiser's parcel identification number for the property on the deed. If this number is available, it should be entered on the deed before it is recorded.
