How much does it cost to record a document?

The basic recording fee is $14 for the first page of a document and $3 for each additional page. This is for a standard 8.5-inch by 11-inch letter-sized document. If any page of a document is larger or smaller than 8.5 inches by 11 inches, or if a page has anything stapled, taped or glued to it, the document will require a $3 non-conforming fee for each and every page. Therefore, the fee for a non-conforming document is $18 for the first page and $6 for each additional page. There also may be additional fees for Documentary Transfer Tax, debtor notification on involuntary liens and additional indexing.
