Documents Acceptance Policy
Register of Deeds
525 N Main, #227
Wichita, KS 67203
The Sedgwick County Register of Deeds is able to scan all documents presented to the office for recording.
With this new system we will need to have additional space on
all documents presented for recording. We will need to have a minimum
of 3” at the top of the front page on all documents and 1” at the bottom of the
front page on all documents to have sufficient recording room for the
necessary recording information. This area needs to be completely blank
and if this area is not provided we will need to attach an additional sheet
before your document can be processed.
This additional sheet will become an actual page for your
document. The charge for recording deeds, mortgages, or other instruments of writing
is $11.00 and
$4.00 for the recording of release or assignment of real estate mortgages for
all documents submitted for recording that do not provide the
requirement of 3” at the top of the front page and 1” at the bottom of the front
page and 1” at the top and bottom of each additional page, with a ½” side margin
(minimum). Per KSA 28-115.
KSA 28-115 “If sufficient space is not provided for the
necessary recording information and certification on a document, such recording
information shall be placed on an additional sheet and such sheet shall be
counted as a page.”
We appreciate your cooperation with the implementation of this
new system and hope that this will not cause an inconvenience to you.
Should you need additional information, please contact the
Sedgwick County Register of Deeds office at (316) 660-9400.
Thank you in advance for your assistance.
