Effective January 1, 2024 the county clerk's office will no longer charge the $1 document fee (formerly courthouse security fee) for recording documents in real property. Senate Bill No. 1612 repealed the document fee under LGC Chapter 291. The new recording fee will now be $25 for the first page and $4 for each additional page. This fee change will also effect DBA's, Cattle Brands, and Marriage License Fees. Documents mailed to us with incorrect fees will be rejected. We cannot issue refunds.  Call our office to make sure you are sending the correct amount with your documents to be recorded and if you are e-recording the fees will automatically be updated for you.

 

 
Effective immediately! Anyone bringing in a document to be recorded will be required to show a current photo ID. No exceptions! 
 
The County Clerk's office cannot give legal advice.  If you need legal advice please speak with an attorney prior to visiting our office.  We do not provide legal forms and cannot give instructions on how to fill out legal documents as that would be giving legal advice. 
 
If you are needing to file a document in this office the document needs to be already prepared, signed and notarized when you get here.  We are not notaries. We will only accept original documents or certified copies of original documents.  We cannot accept photocopies.  You can also mail your original documents to us along with your check and a self addressed return envelope.  Your documents will be returned to you after they are recorded. Thank you!
 
If you are a title company, bank, mortgage company or an attorney you can save time and money by filing your documents electronically using one of our e-recording partners.  
 
If you are inquiring about a Divorce you will need to contact the District Clerk's office at 936-873-4433.
