Note


Mortgage can be signed by Power of Attorney with no additional paperwork needed.

Mortgage tax is 1% and is calculated by rounding to the nearest $100 of the mortgage amount.

If a mortgage is recorded with consolidation information anywhere in the document, we need exemption affidavits stating that there were no advances or re-advances on the previously recorded mortgage.

Assign a Mortgage


To assign a mortgage, the current mortgagee must execute. Fee to record a 1-page assignment is $50.50 plus $5 for each additional page. The cover page is generated in this office and the fee is included in the $50.50.

Note


If more than one mortgage is listed on a single assignment, each additional mortgage after the first is $3.50.

A return address must appear on the document.

To Discharge


The discharge must list the assignment history with recording information. Fee to record a 1-page document is $50.50 plus $5 for each additional page plus 50 cents for each assignment. Each additional mortgage discharged after the first (as in the case of a consolidation) is $50.50. The cover page is generated in this office and the fee is included in the $50.50. A return address must appear on the document.

If the discharge is signed by Power of Attorney, the discharge must state the liber, page, and date the POA was recorded in our office.

When discharging a mortgage which is part of a consolidation agreement, all mortgages in the agreement must be recited and discharged simultaneously.

Correction Mortgage


It must be titled "Correction Mortgage," reference the liber, page, and recording date of the mortgage being corrected, and include exemption affidavits in duplicate along with a 50 cent notation fee.
