Recording Documents

Requirements for Recording

Your document must be completed, signed, and notarized (if you need a form you may check with an attorney, title company, or simply look on the Internet as we are unable to provide pre-drafted forms). Most documents need to have a legal description or instrument number referencing the original recorded document.
