The County Register is responsible for recording and maintaining records in Hudson County.
You are NOT on the Hudson County official website, you are on Deeds.com, a private website that is not affiliated with any government agency.
Effective May 1, 2017, a cover sheet or an electronic synopsis will be required with all land documents submitted for recording. An additional fee of $20.00 will be charged for documents submitted without it.
The price to record a deed, easement, or final judgment is $45 for the first page, and $10 for each additional one-sided page. Marginal notations are $10.
To record a mortgage, the fee is $35, and $10 for each additional page.
The realty transfer tax fees must be paid at the time of recording and are as follows:
$2 per $500 of consideration in excess of $150,000;
$3.35 per $500 of consideration not in excess of $150,000 but not more than $200,000;
$3.90 per $500 of consideration in excess of $200,000 but not more than $350,000.
For considerations in excess of that amount, see the New Jersey treasury's website.
Reduced rates apply to senior citizens, blind or disabled persons and on property that is low/moderate-income housing.
* Documents conveying interest in real estate should include a description of the real property that is sufficient enough to identify it, as well as the nature of the interest.
* The names of the grantor and grantee must be given, and the document must be attested to by at least one witness.
* A statement for the true consideration for the transfer should be contained in the deed.
* If the transfer is of real property, the words 'NEW CONSTRUCTION' in upper-case letters should be printed clearly at the top of the first page of the deed. An affidavit by the grantor stating that the transfer is of property that is under new construction shall be appended to the deed.
