Recording Fees

To record the first page of a deed, mortgage, or other instrument of writing, the fee is $8 for the first page and $4 for each additional page or fraction of a page. If an instrument exceeds 8.5 x 14 inches, the Register of Deeds will collect an additional $2 per page.

If the names of any signers or any notary public are not plainly typed or printed underneath signatures, an additional $1 will be charged and collected.

Acknowledgment of a signature is 50 cents.

The fee to certify any instrument of record is $1.

If a document is deemed illegible, it should be accompanied by an exact (legible) copy thereof which will be recorded along with the illegible copy and will count as additional pages when fees are assessed.

Document Formatting Requirements
The Register of Deeds maintains and preserves land records for the county of Anderson. Among the documents recorded are warranty deeds, mortgages, and many other instruments affecting title to real property in Anderson County. All fees are due before recording can take place. Every instrument in writing that conveys real estate must be recorded in the county where the property is located.

Every instrument in writing, certified and recorded in the manner prescribed by Kansas Statutes will, from the time of filing with the register of deeds, impart notice to all persons of the content thereof; and all subsequent purchasers and mortgagees shall be deemed to purchase with notice.

An instrument that has not been recorded will not be valid, except between the parties to the instrument and those who have actual notice of it.

• Submit documents on white 8.5 x 11 inch paper. The following margins should be given on documents: a 3.5 inch top margin on the first page. All other margins on the first page can be ½ an inch. Interior pages should have a top margin of at least 1 inch and side and bottom margins of at least ½ an inch.

• If sufficient space is not provided for the necessary recording information and certification, the information will be placed on a separate page. This will result in extra fees.

• Documents must be of sufficient legibility so as to produce a legible reproduction. Use a font size of at least 10 point and black ink.

• In counties that maintain a numerical index, the register of deeds shall compare the instrument, before copying it in the record, with the last record of transfer of the property described. If the register of deeds finds that the instrument contains apparent errors, the instrument will not be recorded until the grantee has been notified by the register of deeds, if such notification is possible.

• Upon recording an instrument, the grantor, grantee, or any other person conveying or receiving real property or other interest in real property shall provide the register of deeds with the full name and last known address of the person to whom the property is being conveyed.

• The grantor must sign and acknowledge the real estate deed.

Real Estate Sales Validation Questionnaire:
No deed or instrument providing for the transfer of title to real estate or affidavit of equitable interest in real estate will be recorded unless the instrument is accompanied by a Real Estate Sales validation questionnaire, which should be completed by the grantor or grantee concerning the property transferred. This instrument will not be filed by the register of deeds, but will be retained for a period of five years.

If the questionnaire does not apply due to an exemption, the exemption should be clearly stated on the document being filed.

Anderson County requires the 3-part validation form.
