What are the recording fees?

Effective October 1, 2016 in the State of Michigan.

The recording fee for a deed, mortgage, lis pendens or any other real estate instrument is $30.

Regardless of the number of pages, all documents will cost $30 to record, this cost is inclusive of Michigan Remonumentation and Register of Deeds Automation fees.

For a document that assigns or discharges more than 1 instrument $3 for each instrument assigned or discharged (in addition to the $30 flat fee). The only exception is if a document is from the State of Michigan or a political subdivision of the State to a Land Bank Authority.

To certify a recorded document $5; copies remain at $1 per page.

If you have any questions, please contact your local Register of Deeds or refer to MCL 600.2567.
