San Juan County Recorder Information

The County Clerk is responsible for recording and maintaining records related to real property situated in San Juan County.

Recording Fees

The fee to record a deed is $25, but only $10 when a document is personally brought into the Clerk's Office by either the grantor or grantee listed on the document with proof of identity (driver's license or another picture ID). Mailed in documents are not brought in personally, therefore the $10 fee does not apply. Mailing address is: P.O. Box 550, Aztec, NM 87410

If a document contains more than 10 entries to be indexed, there will be an additional $25 for each additional block of 10 or fewer entries to be indexed.
Each indexed grantor and grantee counts as one entry. For example: Jim White and Helen White, husband and wife equals two entries. Helen White, aka Helen Rogers equals two entries.

Recording fees are due at the time of recording. Make checks or money order payable to San Juan County Clerk.

The San Juan County Clerk’s office also accepts e-Recordings.
