It is the responsibility of the person submitting the document for recording to make sure that the document is an original that has been signed and properly acknowledged before a notary public, that it contains the proper information for recording, and that it is accompanied by the required fees. We ask that you include a self-addressed stamped envelope for return upon completion of recording.
The Clerk’s staff is unable to offer legal advice. We are a Recording office only, and do not prepare or supply forms to the public. Those wishing to record a document in the Clerk’s office are encouraged to enlist the services of a real estate attorney prior to recording.
