Certification Fee - $2 per document
* All documents must be proved or acknowledged before they can be recorded. The grantor must sign the instrument.
* The text of the document must be in the English language or must be accompanied by a certified English translation.
* Documents should be submitted on 8.5 x 11 inch white paper. Use standard 20# paper without watermarks or visible logos. Individual pages of a document should not be permanently bound or in a continuous form. However, a document can be stapled together for presentation for recording.
* Attachments to a page may not be stapled or taped other than a securely attached barcoded label. "Attachment" does not refer to an "exhibit," but additions to a document page.
* Printing should be in black or dark ink on one side only. Font size should be a minimum of 8 point. Non-essential information, such as page numbers, is exempt from this requirement.
* Signatures must be in black or dark ink to ensure reproduction from record. Corresponding names must be typed, printed, or stamped beneath signatures.
* At the top of the first page, include a blank 3-inch top margin. This is for the Recorder's certification.
* All other margins on the first and subsequent pages should be a minimum of .75 of an inch.
* Non-essential information within the margins does not have to comply with the font requirement. However, the Recorder is not liable for ensuring that non-essential information is archived. Non-essential information can include page numbers, form numbers, return addresses, etc.
* Immediately below the 3-inch top margin on the first page, the following information should be given: Title of the document, date of the document, all grantors' names, all grantees' names, any statutory addresses, a legal description of the real property, and reference book and pages, if required.
* If there is not sufficient room on the first page for the required information, the page reference within the document where the information is set out shall be stated on the first page. If one of the required fields begins on the first page and continues uninterrupted to subsequent pages, this will meet the first-page requirement.
* A cover page is not required, but if one is presented it will be recorded as the first page of the document. The cover page must have the 3-inch top margin and all of the required information and designations.
* Grantors and grantees must be designated in order to be indexed. There is no limit as to combinations or exclusions, but the words "grantor" and "grantee" must be included. It is the filer's or preparer's responsibility to make the appropriate designations.
* Statutory addresses must also be designated, i.e. "Grantee's mailing address."
* The address of the property will not be accepted as a legal description.
* If book and page references are required (such as for a release deed, assignment, etc.), these must also be designated.
* If a document is presented for re-recording, in addition to all other requirements, there must be a new first page or cover sheet with the correct margins, required information, and designations.
