The recording department is responsible for processing and preserving documents presented for recording as public record. All records are open to the public and certified copies of any document of record are available for a fee.
In order to help prevent delays or errors when recording documents, please follow these guidelines:
Colorado law (CRS 30-10-406(3)(a)) requires that all documents have a top and bottom margin of at least one inch and a left and right margin of at least ½ inch.

Colorado law (CRS 38-35-109(2)) requires that all deeds include a notation of the legal (mailing) address of the grantee. This address is used to determine where tax statements should be mailed after a property is sold. Individuals should verify the accuracy and completeness of such addresses before recording any deed.
Saguache County employees cannot do lien searches. Anyone desiring a lien search may conduct a self-lien search, or have a third party come into our office and conduct the search. Individuals may also choose to hire a title company to conduct this type of search.
Recording fees are statutorily established and a fee will more than likely be collected when a document is recorded. Please make sure that all fees are correct and accurate. Documents received with insufficient fees will be returned.
