Formatting Guidelines

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. 

To ensure your document meets our standards for recording, please review our formatting guidelines here.
