Document Formatting Requirements

An instrument that fails to meet conditions required by the Utah State Code may be rejected for recordation.

* Original documents are required. A certificate of the acknowledgment of any document, or the proof of the execution of any document, a jurat, or other notarial certificate containing the words "subscribed and sworn" or their substantial equivalent that is signed and certified by the officer taking the acknowledgment entitles the document and certificate to be recorded.

* The document must be sufficiently legible in order to be recorded. A paper size of 8.5 x 11 inches should be used. Printing should be single-sided only. Black ink on white paper with a font size of at least 9 point will help to ensure legibility.

* On the first page, a blank space of 2.5 inches down by 4.5 inches across should be provided in the upper right corner. All other margins should be at least 1 inch.

* A brief caption stating the nature of the document should be given on the first page.

* The grantee must be named in the document, along with a mailing address to be used for assessment and taxation.

* Corresponding names should be typed beneath signatures. This pertains to the signers whose names are required to be indexed.

* A legal description of the real property is required.

* The applicable tax serial number of each parcel described in the instrument must be noted on the face of the instrument before it will be accepted for recording.

* 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 ADDENDA
