County Recorder's Filing Fees and Locations
Hi Folks, because every single
County Recorder's office has their own fees & filing requirements which change on a regular basis, It's just too difficult to try to provide you with accurate fee information that doesn't have to be continually researched and edited.
Since you will only have 1 set of paperwork to file for each claim with the county each year, it's much easier to provide you the following guidelines on how to find the fee information you will need to file your paperwork.
The first option of course, is just doing a simple websearch. Most Counties list their fees, and in most cases, you should be able to find the information you need on their website.
The second option is to call the county recorder and ask them a few simple questions:
Ask these questions
1. What is the fee to file a (name of form you wish to file) for a placer mining claim?
2. And does this form need to be notarized?
3. What is the cost for additional mining claims listed on the same form? (If applicable)
If the form does need to be notarized, be sure to add the additional "per page" fee to the overall filing fee cost.
