2016 Filing Fees
The Register of Deeds is responsible for recording
all transactions having to do with real estate including deeds
and mortgages. We maintain these records so that the public is
made aware of their existence. This is also where financing
statements and security agreements are filed pertaining to real
estate under the Uniform Commercial Code (UCC). You can
access UCC forms at the Kansas Secretary of State's Office web
site. Their fees are not the same as the county level.
Please see Filing Fees below for county recording fees and a
link for UCC forms at the bottom of this page.
General Recording Requirements
Documents presented for recording must be originals, signed and
properly notarized, and of sufficient legibility so as to
produce a clear and legible reproduction (K.S.A. 28-115).
(which are set by state statute) must accompany all documents
for recording. The Neosho County Register of Deeds office has
implemented a scanning/imaging system of all documents presented
to the office for recording. With this new recording system,
along with the scanning system, we need a minimum of 3" at the
top of the first page and 1" at the bottom of the first page of
documents presented for recording. 1" margins at the top and
bottom and 1/2" margins on the sides of each additional document
are also required. This area needs to be completely blank. We
appreciate your cooperation with the implementation of our new
system and hope that this will not cause any inconvenience to
you. For more information, please view our
