Document Requirements

All Documents presented for recording at the Land Records Division must be signed and notarized original documents, no faxed copies. Please note that e-recording is also available.

This Court requires a Virginia Land Record Cover Sheet for land record recordings. 
To calculate recording costs, please visit the Virginia Supreme Court deed calculator.

Please note when recording a plat by itself (meaning without being attached to a deed or instrument), all land owners referenced in the plat must complete a Plat Affidavit in PDF or Plat Affidavit in Word. All owners signatures must be notarized, or can be sworn by a deputy clerk here in the office. Plats recorded without a deed, or any other instrument, do not require a land record cover sheet.

Forms for Certificates of Satisfaction, Certificates of Partial Satisfaction, Certificates of Transfer, Releases of Mechanics' Lien and Releases of Lis Pendens are available at the Land Records Office or they may be downloaded from the link to the Virginia Judicial System website.
