Effective November 1, 2010 we will begin collecting recording fees for all documents related to Lis Pendens (except for Orders) that are filed after the original Lis Pendens has been filed. Examples of the documents for which these charges will apply are Discharges of Lis Pendens, Satisfaction of Lis Pendens, Notices of Dropping Parties, Voluntary Dismissals, etc.
The recording fees will be $10.00 for the first page and $8.50 for each additional page. Payment will be made in the same manner as any other recorded document—cash, check or credit card. Checks must be payable to the Clerk of the Court.
Please be advised, the recording fee allows for 4 names to be indexed. If the document has over 4 names to be indexed, there is an additional fee of $1.00 per name. All names listed as plaintiff and defendant are counted.
All variation of names are counted (example: James Darrell Thornton, James D Thornton, J D Thornton also known as Jimmy Thornton---this is a total of 4 names).
We also index all successors by mergers, f/k/a, d/b/a, nominee for, names shown on the document. We do not index John Doe, Jane Doe or Unknown Tenant.
Please note: the recording fees for the Lis Pendens is $5.00 for the first page & $4.00 for each additional page.
