Filing policy changes effective January 1, 2020

With KRS 64.012 being amended by 2019 Ky. Acts ch. 86, sec. 43, effective January 1, 2020, our policy for filing the following items will also change:

  1. Certified copies – the copy fee of $.50 per page will be also assessed along with the $5.00 certification fee
  2. Mortgage with MERS as mortgagee will also require a mortgage assignment filing to the lender for which MERS is acting as a nominee. (mortgage filing fee = $80.00 + mortgage assignment fee = $46.00, total $126.00)
  3. The index will be under type code MTGWA and have a single book and page reference.

    The Kentucky County Clerks Association has formally adopted on November 19, 2019 the Property Records Industry Association (PRIA) standards for Real Estate Document Formatting. The format standards are effective January 1, 2020.
