The State of California has complex recording fees. In addition, each county has their own requirements including separate fees designated to certain cities.

Over and above these recording fees are other fees which may be due. These additional fees may or may not include any of the following:

  • Documentary Transfer Tax
  • City Real Property Transfer Tax
  • Survey Monument Fee
  • Preliminary Change of Ownership Report (PCOR) Fee

Because of the complicated fee structure, we recommend that you contact the county clerk ( contact information above ) and they will provide the exact cost of recording your California Quitclaim Deed.
