Information for Recording a New Deed

You may obtain a new deed form from your attorney, through the internet or from a stationery store that sells legal forms. A deed is a legal form and is not supplied by our office. This form must be complete with the names and addresses (P.O. Boxes are unacceptable) of all parties to the document. The grantor must sign the deed form and that signature must be properly acknowledged by a notary public. All signatures must be original; we cannot accept photocopies. A complete description of the property including the village, town, county and state where the property is located must also be included on the form.

It is the policy of the Clerk's Office to examine documents for recording.

Your deed must be accompanied with the following completed forms:

TP-584

RP-5217

There is a fee to record a new deed. Please see our Schedule of Fees.
