Document Formatting Requirements
• 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.

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.
