How to Record a Document
1. Completed/Fully Executed Documents. Our office cannot provide forms for legal documents. Staff cannot provide assistance in filling out legal documents/templates. Submit TD-1000s together with applicable documents to the Clerk & Recorder, we will forward to the Assessor's Office. TD-1000s (Transfer Declarations) are not required for timeshares.
2. Correct Fees are submitted with original documents to be recorded. C.R.S. 30-1-103. Checks are required to be made payable to "Summit County Clerk", properly dated and signed. Applicable State Documentary Fees should also be included with the Recording Fee Payment. For transactions with consideration over $500.00, 10¢ per $1,000.00 should be included with payment. C.R.S. 39-13-102. *Even if there is no consideration on the document, but there is consideration on the TD-1000, it is required to submit the State of Colorado Documentary Fee.
3. Correct Margins should be accommodated in the format of the document(s) submitted for recording. A top margin of at least one inch and all other margins at least 1/2-inch is required. C.R.S. 301-10-406(3)(a).
4. Return Mailing Address or SASE indicated on the document's front or reverse side. Self-addressed, stamped envelopes assist staff in the return of original documents once recorded. SASEs are not required, but are greatly appreciated.
