• Documents should be submitted on white paper that is either 8.5x11 inches or 8.5x14 inches. In order to produce a legible copy, a document should be completed in black ink with a font size of at least 10 point. If it is not judged to be of sufficient legibility so as to produce a clear and legible reproduction, the document shall be accompanied by an exact copy of sufficient legibility. It will be recorded contemporaneously with the document and will be counted as additional pages.

• All schedules and exhibits accompanying the instrument should be clearly labeled and identified.

• A conveyance must be duly signed, dated, and acknowledged by the grantor.

• On the first page, include a top margin of at least 3 inches. This is reserved for the recording label. If sufficient space is not provided for the recording label on the first page, an additional page will be added.

• The grantor or other person conveying or receiving real property or other interest in real property shall furnish the last known post office address of the grantee to the register of deeds upon recording the instrument.

• The name and address of the person who prepared the document should be given on the first page.

• A legal description of the real property being conveyed should be provided on the face of the deed. City descriptions include a lot, block, and addition or subdivision name. Boundaries indicated by a metes and bounds description should include section, township, and range. If a previously recorded instrument is referenced, the reference book and page should be included.

A completed Kansas Real Estate Sales Validation Questionnaire should be submitted with each deed presented for recording. If the document is exempt, this exemption must be clearly stated on the deed.
