Recently, Governor Tom Wolf signed into law Acts 40 and 44 of 2017 resulting in fee increases totaling $4.75 to supplement the Judicial Computer Project/Access to Justice/Criminal Justice Enhancement Account fee by amending 42 Pa.C.S. 3733.1 and enacting 72 P.S. 1795.1-E.
This legislation instructs Recorders of Deeds to collect this increased fee on all recordings for which the fee is currently charged.
Effective November 30, 2017 @ 4:30 pm, documents with a filing fee of $54.00 will increase to $58.75 and documents with a filing fee of $65.50 will increase to $70.25.
Any documents presented for recording after said time and without the correct fee will be rejected. Please know that all revenue collected by this fee increase will go directly to the state. If you have additional questions, please feel free to contact the Recorders Office.
Our goal is to give you access to the information regarding land records right at your office as quickly and economically as possible. We added images of our documents back to 1972 as well as historical online indexes for deeds dating from 1803-1919 and agreements from 1803-1972. For security reasons all instruments have gone through a redaction process (social security numbers blocked out).
