Document Requirements

The recording department is governed by Colorado State Statutes. In order to record your documents without delays and prevent rejections the following requirements must be met:

  • 1-inch margin at top of document
  • grantee address for deeds that transfer title to property
  • documentary fee or explanation of exemption on deeds.  See C.R.S. 39-13-102 and 39-13-104
  • proper fees included
  • include a return address for the original document

Questions related to what type of document is needed or how to fill out a document for a particular transaction should be directed to a title company or private attorney. The clerk’s office staff does not have the legal training to insure accuracy with these questions.

Contact us at with questions that may include marriage license recording deadline, document turnaround time, rejected documents, help researching a document, confirmation that a document was recorded, help with internet document searches.
