Recording of Land Records
Circuit Court Clerk - Recording of Land Records - General Information

The Circuit Court Clerk's Office records deeds, deeds of trust (mortgages), and other official instruments/documents associated with land transactions in Chesterfield County. In order for a document to be recorded, it must be one that is authorized by law to be recorded in the Deed Book and it must meet certain statutory provisions. Recordation fees and taxes vary according to the type of document being recorded. Recording hours are from 8:00 a.m. - 3:30 p.m., Monday through Friday. Documents presented after normal recording hours will be recorded the next business day.

All documents presented for recordation must be originals that have been signed and notarized.  For deeds, the amount of consideration must be stated on the first page of the document (i.e., not only on the Land Records Cover Sheet). 

Filing parties must submit a self-addressed, stamped envelope (SASE) to ensure the safe and timely return of documents recorded in the Deed Book. Documents without a SASE will not be mailed. Recorded documents that are not accompanied by a SASE will be maintained in the Record Room for pickup.
