In 2001, the Missouri State Legislature passed a comprehensive statute laying out the format and requirements for documents filed with the Recorder of Deeds. These requirements were designed to allow us to do a better job of recording and preserving records. The statute also sets the filing fees for various types of records. In summary, the statute requires a specific 'standard' format for information on the first page of documents being filed. Documents which do not meet this requirement are defined as 'non-standard'.

See the "Document Standards" tab for requirements.
