Press Release, March 9, 2010

On April 12, 2010, the El Dorado County Recorder-Clerk will begin collecting an increase in the base recording fee for each instrument, paper, or notice required or permitted by law to be recorded.

This change was approved by the El Dorado County Board of Supervisors on March 9, 2010 and, will increase the recording fee of the 1st page of every document or title by $6.00. For example a 1 page basic document (with no District Attorney Fraud Fee) will increase from the current $9.00 fee to $15.00. There is no change to the additional page fee.

The increase does not affect the recording fee of Uniform Commercial Code documents or, Government Releases of Lien.
