.GUIDELINES FOR FILING REAL ESTATE DOCUMENTS AND LIENS
1-When filing documents for recording, please leave 3 inches at the top of the first page of the document and 1 inch at the top of the following pages for recording purposes.
2- Documents containing more than 5 page should be sent in a large manilla envelope rather than "stuffed" into a regular, standard envelope.
3- A self addressed stamped envelope should be included with each document for returning.
4- When including a legal description, it should  be clear, concise and the print should be large enough to be read when copied and/or scanned. Please do not include a faxed copy of the legal description as these are not clear and blurs when scanned.
5- Please included a contact number and return address on each document so if there are  any questions during the recording process, we will be able to contact you regarding your document.
