Coos County Recorder Information

The County Clerk is responsible for recording and maintaining real property records.

Recording Fees

To record a deed or mortgage, the fee is $46 for the first page and $5 for each additional page.

Multiple transactions are $5.00 per additional transaction.

A non-standard instrument can be recorded for an additional $20.

When presented with a document, the county recorder will take the following steps to determine the instruments' recordability:

1) Determine whether there is legal authority to record the instrument,
2) determine whether first-page requirements have been met,
3) determine whether the instrument meets the legibility requirements, and
4) determine whether the appropriate fees have been received. Documents submitted with insufficient fees will be returned UNRECORDED. Documents are returned within 10 days.
Document Formatting Requirements
• The first page of the document shall contain the name of the transaction(s); the names of the grantor(s) and grantee(s); the name and address to which the document should be returned after recording; for documents of conveyance of any real estate, the true and actual consideration paid for the transfer; for instruments conveying or contracting to convey fee title to any real estate, the tax statement information; for County Clerk Lien Record instruments, they shall be on official letterhead and include the seals of officers and agencies; for instruments assigning a mortgage or trust deed, the names and addresses of the assignee mortgagee or assignee trust deed beneficiary.

• If documents do not contain the required information on the first page, a cover sheet will be prepared for the document, to which additional fees will be applied. The cover sheet does not need to be separately signed or acknowledged.

• All instruments of conveyance of any real estate shall state on the face of the instrument the true and actual consideration paid for the transfer, stated in terms of dollars. However, if the actual consideration consists of or includes other property or other value given or promised, neither the monetary value nor a description of the other property or value need be stated so long as it is noted on the face of the instrument that other property or value was either part or the whole consideration. A particular form is not required for the statement of consideration.

• The statement of consideration shall be made by the grantor or grantee.

• A conveyance or interest of real property that is made to two or more people will 1) create a tenancy in common unless the conveyance specifically states that the parties take the property with right of survivorship; 2) create a tenancy by the entirety if the conveyance is to a husband and wife unless the conveyance states otherwise; and 3) creates a joint tenancy if the conveyance is to a trustee or personal representative.

• All instruments prepared for the purpose of conveying or contracting to convey fee title to any real estate shall contain on the face of such instrument a statement in substantially the following form: ‘Until a change is requested, all tax statements shall be sent to the following address: NAME and ADDRESS.’

Initial letters, abbreviations, figures, fractions and exponents, to designate the township, range, section or part of a section, or the number of any lot or block or part thereof, or any distance, course, bearing or direction, may be employed in any such description of real property.
