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 included
  • documentary fee or explanation of exemption on deeds – see C.R.S. 39-13-102 and 39-13-104
  • proper fees included
  • return address for the original document included

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.
