Recorder Notices

Document Recording Fee Modification Disclaimer

Date: 12 1, 2014

Attention: Document Recording Customers

Pursuant to Government Codes Sections 27320, 27324, 27360 and 27361, it is the duty of the Los Angeles County Registrar-Recorder/County Clerk’s office to carefully examine all documents presented for recording, and to charge and collect fees based on the examination process.

To ensure your document is recorded accurately and the public index is properly reflected, each document you submit is reviewed by staff at various levels and stages throughout the process after the initial acceptance and receipting.  This level of document scrutiny may require your document to be modified, which may change the fee for recordation and result in either an overpayment (refund) or underpayment (billing).  If a modification occurs you will be notified through correspondence from our Finance and Management Department.

Please note that the integrity of our index and processing of your document is the utmost priority to the Registrar-Recorder/County Clerk.  The Department continues to evaluate internal processes to ensure document modifications are processed as timely as possible.  

Thank you,

The Document Recording Management Team
