DETERMINATION OF RECORDING ENTRIES

All documents will be given a new method in determining filing fees, including plats/surveys. The County Clerk’s Office will review the Grantor/Grantee’s and legal description of each document and determine how many entries will be required for indexing. Every name indexed counts as one entry. For example:

GRANTOR/GRANTEE: EVERY NAME INDEXED COUNTS AS 1 ENTRY
Ben White, an unmarried man=1 Ellen White, Individually and Attorney in fact for Ben White=2 Ben White and Ellen White, husband and wife = 2 Ellen White, aka Ellen Louise White=1

SUBDIVIDED LOTS: ALL LOTS WITHIN THE SAME BLOCK ARE 1 ENTRY
Lots 1, 2, 3 Block 7 Aber Addition = 1 Lot 1 Block 7 and Lot 1 Block 8 Aber Addition = 2

LOTS AND TRACTS THAT ARE NOT INCLUSIVE OF A BLOCK ARE INDEXED AS 1 ENTRY
Lots 7, 12, 15, 78 of Hills Village Subdivision = 1 Tracts A, B and C of Acres North Subdivision = 1

NON-SUBDIVIDED LOTS: ALL PARCELS WITHIN THE SAME SECTION ARE 1 ENTRY
SE ¼ of Section 6, Township 11N, Range 30E = 1 (all in one section) SE ½, NE½, NW¼, SW ¼, Section 6, Township 11N, R30E = 1 (all in one section) SE ¼, Section 6, SW ¼, Section 7, Township 11N, R30E = 2 (two sections) SE ¼, Section 6, SW ¼, NW ¼ NE ¼ Section 7, All Section 8, T11N, R30E = 3 (three sections)
