“Changes to the recording fees are a result of the recent law change,” says Clerk Toulouse Oliver. “This change in the law provides for a simple and fairer fee structure for the recording of documents. Overall, most people or businesses that record documents will see the cost decrease, and it will be easier for all who record documents to predict the total cost. We want to give residents and businesses as much notice as possible.”
Effective July 1, 2011, Bernalillo County Recording and Filing fees will be $25.00 (twenty five dollars) for each document recorded. If the document contains more than ten entries to the County recording index, the County shall collect an additional fee of $25.00 (twenty-five dollars).
If a document is filed IN-PERSON, and contains fewer than ten entries to the County recording index by one of the interested persons named on the document, the County shall collect a fee of $10.00 (ten dollars).
An entry is the list of names that appear on the document to be recorded or legal descriptions pertaining to lots or tracts.
Documents that are recorded in the Clerk’s Office include deeds, liens, mortgages, maps and plats and marriage licenses.
Recent passage of Senate Bill 369 requires a change in the recording fee schedule.
