Document Formatting Requirements
Documents are usually recorded on the day they are received at the Register of Deeds. First, the document is evaluated on the basis of completeness and compliance with state statutes. Second, it is scanned for obvious errors. Third, the proper fees are assessed and the document is filed after the fees have been paid. After these steps are completed, the document is recorded. When the indexing is completed, the document is reproduced digitally and as a hard copy. The original documents are then returned to the owner.

To ensure that this process goes smoothly, documents should adhere to the following guidelines:

• Original documents only can be recorded—do not send copies.

• Documents should be submitted on white 8.5x11 inch paper or 8.5x14 inch paper. Paper should be standard copy weight (20 pound).

• Printing should be single sided only, with a font size of 10 point in Times New Roman black ink.

• Signatures should be in dark black or blue ink. Names should be printed, typed, or stamped underneath all signatures.

• The first page should have a top margin of 3 inches. All other margins should be a minimum of 1 inch.

• Documents should be properly signed, notarized, and acknowledged.

• If the document includes a legal description, make sure it is complete and compatible with all initial recordings.

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

• Documents should be properly titled, dated, and executed.

• Include the name and address of the preparer of the document, as well as a return address so that the document can be returned to the appropriate party.

• Deeds must be accompanied by a Real Estate Questionnaire or show a K.S.A. exemption number on the face of the deed. A Mortgage Registration Fee Affidavit is required to claim an exemption.
