Question

What are the requirements that must be met for a document to be recorded?

Answer

There are different requirements depending on the type of document, so they cannot be listed here. It is the responsibility of the person offering the document for recording to make sure (1) that the document is original, (2) that it is signed and that the signatures are properly acknowledged before a notary public, (3) that the document is a complete writing and contains the required information, (4) that is accompanied by the proper fees, and (5) that is accompanied by a stamped self-addressed envelope so that it can be returned to the party offering it for recordation. If no self-addressed envelope is included, the document will be sent back to the address on the envelope the document was received in. The clerk's staff cannot give legal advice. Those seeking to record a document in the Clerk's office are encouraged to obtain the advice of a professional.
