Document Formatting Requirements

The proof of execution of any conveyance by which real estate is conveyed or may be affected shall be by the testimony of a subscribing witness, if there is one. When all the subscribing witnesses are dead or cannot be had, the proof of execution can be by evidence of the handwriting of the party, and of a subscribing witness, if there is one, given by a credible witness to each signature. A document must be notarized with the notary stamp and seal legible.

Submit an original document that contains a brief caption on the first page that states the nature of the document. A document must be sufficiently legible so as to enable the clerk to make certified copies as needed.

Each instrument should have typed or printed on it the name of each person whose signature appears on the instrument whose name is required to be indexed. The name should be typed or printed below that person's signature.

Documents should be written in the English language or be accompanied by an accurate translation.

Use white paper that measures 8.5 x 11 inches in size. Use margins of at least 1 inch on all sides of each page. Do not use sheets of paper that are permanently bound or in a continuous form.

If printing is on both sides of a page, extra fees will be charged. Use black ink and a font size of at least 10 point (7 lines of text per vertical inch).

Provide a space of 2.5 inches down and 4.5 inches across in the upper right corner of the first page.

A document submitted for recording must contain a legal description of the real property.

When presenting a document to the county recorder for recordation, there must be a grantee named in the instrument and a recitation of a mailing address to be used for assessment and taxation.

A person may not present and the county recorder may refuse to accept a document if the legal description, the grantee's name, and an address for assessment and taxation are not present.

To facilitate the abstracting of an instrument, a county recorder may require that the applicable tax serial number of each parcel described in the instrument be noted on the instrument before it is accepted for recording. This is not to be considered part of the legal description.

If a person submits a document for recording that is subject to and complies with the Real Estate Settlement and Procedure Act, 12 U.S.C. Sec. 2601 et seq. for a residential property described in Subsection (4)(a), the person shall notify the county recorder by including the word "RESPA" in at least 16 point font on the front page of each document. The County Recorder may use the RESPA fees but is not required to refund a fee or change a fee amount shown on a recorded RESPA document.

WATER RIGHTS ADDENDUM

A deed that is conveying fee simple title to land or a deed that is conveying title to water rights without conveying title to land should be accompanied by a water rights addendum that identifies and describes the water rights transferred under the applicable deed or states that no water rights are being transferred under the applicable deed.

The water rights addendum should be completed and signed by the grantor. The grantee shall sign the water rights addendum to acknowledge receipt. The grantee's signature may be a facsimile or done by electronic means.
