In Colorado, the recording fee for the first page of each document recorded on or after January 1, 2017 in Colorado will increase by $2.00. This means the fee will be $13.00 for the first page and $5.00 for each additional page of each recorded document on or after January 1, 2017.
Effective October 1, 2016, the State of Michigan is changing the fee structure for recording a document at the county level to a flat rate basis, regardless of the number of pages. Per the law, the new fee to record a document will be $30.00. This fee includes the Michigan Remonumentation and Register of Deeds Automation fees. For a document that assigns or discharges more than 1 instrument there will be a $3.00 fee for each instrument assigned or discharged in addition to the $30.00 flat fee.
The effect of the new law is that it will increase the recording fees for many documents that consist of fewer than eight pages, and decrease fees for documents containing eight pages or more.
The certification fee will increase from at least $1.00 (may be higher in some counties) to $5.00. The copy fee remains at $1.00 per page. Search fees remain at 50 cents for each year searched with a minimum of $5.00 - except for tract index searches.
Recording fees are set by the Michigan Legislature. Public Acts 224 through 232 of 2016 set the new fees, see www.legislature.mi.gov and click on the Public Act MCL Search on the left edge.
