Mcpherson County Recorder Information

The recorder in Mcpherson County is responsible for recording and maintaining records related to real property situated in the County.

Recording Fees

To record a deed, mortgage, or other document (not to exceed 8.5x14 inches), the fee is $8 for the first page. Each additional page or attachment is $4.

An assignment or release of mortgage is $5 for each mortgage released or assigned, plus $2 for the first page.

The certification of any instrument of record is $1 for each document plus copy fees.

A $1 fee will be assessed for failure of the notary to type or print their name under their signature, unless using an inked stamp with a name imprint and a legible imprint of seal.

A self-addressed stamped return envelope should be included so documents can be mailed back.
Document Formatting Requirements
When a document is presented, it is evaluated for completeness, compliance with Kansas Statutes, and then it is scanned for obvious errors. Next, the fees are assessed and collected. After fees have been paid, the document will be recorded in the proper reception book.

The recording statute in Kansas is a notice statute. A later buyer who pays fair value for property and does not have notice of any earlier conflicting interests, wins and will have priority over any later recordings.

• Documents must contain original signatures and proper notarization/acknowledgments.

• The document must be of sufficient legibility to produce a clear and legible reproduction.

• Use letter size (8.5x11 inches) white paper and black ink with a font size of at least 12 point.

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

• Corresponding names should be typed or printed beneath signatures.

• Provide sufficient space for the Register of Deeds recording stamp at the top or bottom of the first page. The maximum size is 2.5x7.5. If there is not enough room, the stamp will be placed on the backside of a page, for which additional page fees will apply. A top margin of 3 inches that extends the width of the paper should be large enough to accommodate the recording stamp.

• Immediately below the top margin on the first page, provide a document title.

• The grantor and grantee should be identified in the document.

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

• Include a return name and address on the first page so that the document can be returned after recording.

• Provide a legal description for the real property being conveyed. This can be on the document or included as an exhibit. 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.

Deeds require a one-part Sales Validation Questionnaire form. 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. The Validation Questionnaire, along with a list of exemptions, can be found on the Kansas Registers of Deeds website. The grantor or grantee should complete this form.

The Sales Validation Questionnaire can be obtained from the McPherson County Recorder, or online at the Kansas Registers of Deeds website.
