You are NOT on the Monroe County official website, you are on Deeds.com, a private website that is not affiliated with any government agency.
The County Clerk is responsible for recording and maintaining real property records in Monroe County.
The base fee for recording a deed is $45, which includes the recording page. Each page is $5; therefore, it would cost $50 to record a one-page deed. The fee for recording a mortgage is the same. Applicable mortgage tax is due at the time of recording.
The TP-584 form is $5.
The RP-5217 form, also known as the Equalization Form, has a $125 fee if one of the following boxes is checked: 7A, 7B, 7E or both 7G and box 8, or if the property classification code in Item 18 is 100 through 199; or 200 through 299; or 411-C. For forms not meeting these standards, the fee is $250.
Note: As of January 31, 2014, the old 4-part RP-5217 form is no longer accepted. Instead, use the new RP-5217-PDF Report, available online from the NYS Department of Taxation.
Mortgage taxes vary depending on the loan amount and property type. Contact county for details please.
The Monroe County Clerk's Office accepts cash, checks made payable to 'Monroe County Clerk,' and Visa or MasterCard.
