Document Formatting Requirements

* The document submitted must be an original or a certified copy of an original.

* Paper should be white and 8.5 x 11 inches. 8.5 x 14 is acceptable, but will result in extra fees. Individual sheets of a document should not be continuously bound together at the top, sides, or bottom.

* The text should be in English or be accompanied by an accurate English translation.

* Documents must be clearly readable. Printing should be single-sided only, in black ink, and in a font size of at least 9 point.

* On the first page, a blank space of 2.5 inches down by 4.5 inches across should be provided. This should be in the upper right corner.

* Margins should be at least 1 inch.

* The names of all signors whose names are required to be indexed should be printed or typed beneath signatures.

* Documents affecting real property must be properly notarized.

* A brief caption should be given at the top of the first page and should briefly state the nature of the recordable transaction.

* The mailing address of the grantee must be included.

* Documents affecting real property must have a legal description of the real property.

* The applicable tax serial number of each parcel described within should be noted on the instrument. This is not considered to be 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.


If submitting a deed that conveys a fee simple title to land or if conveying water rights without conveying title to land, a water rights addendum must be included with the deed when it is presented for recording.

A water rights addendum identifies and describes the water rights that are transferred under an applicable deed or states that no water rights are transferred under the applicable deed.

The grantor is required to complete and sign the water rights addendum. The grantee should sign the addendum to acknowledge receipt. The grantee's signature can be a facsimile or done by electronic means.

The recording act in Utah is a race-notice statute. A later buyer who pays fair value, does not have any notice of any other earlier conflicting interests, and records first, will have priority over any later recordings. Real Estate Deeds
