HOW TO DETERMINE RECORDING COSTS
The “Document Inquiry” site provides you with the ability to determine the cost of recording a document. From this site, you have the ability to determine the individual cost of recording a document, as well as the cost of transfer stamps. This site will always be up-to-date with changes in recording fees and transfer stamps.
When you have the inquiry screen open, you will note in the header, a green button titled “Collect;” click the button.
A pop-up screen will appear, and on the left side, is a box for you to enter the type of document you wish to record. Please note the down arrow on the side for the list of documents for you to choose from.
Select your document (one at a time) and answer the questions regarding the number of pages of the document and the “consideration,” if any, being paid.
Then press “enter” on the keyboard and you will notice your entry listed in the box on the right with the total listed on the far right of the screen.
If you have other documents, continue to add them to your list by returning to the box on the left and entering the “type” of your next document and answering the questions.
As you continue to add recording documents you will notice on the bottom right corner of the big screen, the total dollar amount for all of your documents.
This site will give you the cost of each document (helpful in adding information to a Closing Statement), and the grand total of all of your recording fees.
