What does the Recorder’s office mean when they say the document is not legible?

  • Statute requires that the document be photographically reproducible. This includes all portions of the documents including areas completed by pen, signatures and/or seals.
  • Type must be complete. No chipped type will be accepted.
  • Maps, diagrams and pictures are strongly discouraged. Scanning is done in black and white therefore colored images/documents often lose their detail when imaged.
