A summary of an instrument creating an interest in or affecting the title to or possession of real property can be recorded if requirements set forth in the Idaho Code are substantially met. The summary instrument must be signed and acknowledged by all parties to the original instrument. The summary should clearly state: the names of the parties to the original, the complete mailing address of the grantee, the title and date of the instrument, a description of the interest in real property created by the instrument, and the legal description of the real property. Additional elements of the transaction may be stated in the summary. If the requirements are substantially met, the summary may be recorded, and as to the contents of the summary only, it shall have the same force and effect as if the original instrument had been recorded. Constructive notice will be deemed to be given concerning the contents of the summary and the existence of the instrument to any subsequent purchasers, mortgagees, or other persons or entities that acquire an interest in the property.

A conveyance of real property that has been acknowledged or proved, certified, and recorded as required by law is, from the time it is filed with the recorder for record, is constructive notice of the contents to all subsequent purchasers and mortgagees.

Every conveyance of real property that is acknowledged or proved, certified, and recorded and which is executed by one who thereafter acquires an interest in said real property by a conveyance which is constructive notice is, from the time the latter conveyance is recorded, constructive notice of the contents to subsequent purchasers and mortgagees.

If a conveyance of real property other than a lease for a term not exceeding one year is not recorded as required, it is void as against any subsequent purchaser and mortgagee of the same property or a portion of the property, in good faith and for a valuable consideration, whose conveyance is first duly recorded.
If left unrecorded, a conveyance is valid as between the parties to it and those who have notice of it.
