Document Formatting Requirements

A deed may be recorded at any time; but a prior unrecorded deed loses its priority over a subsequent recorded deed from the same vendor when the purchaser takes such deed without notice of the existence of the prior deed.

* Deeds must be signed by the grantor in front of a notary and one witness.

* Submit documents on white 8.5 x 11 inch paper. Black or blue ink in a font size of at least 10 point will help to ensure legibility. A document must be legible in order to be recorded.

* The top margin on the first page should be at least 3 inches. All other margins on the first page and on subsequent pages can be at least 1 inch.

* At the top of the first page, provide the name and address of the person to whom the document is going to be returned to after recording.

* Include the name and address of the grantee. This can be on the first page.

* Corresponding names must be typed, printed, or stamped underneath signatures.

* Provide a legal description of the real property being conveyed. The legal description should show the lot, block, and subdivision name. Real Estate Deeds
