Still time to save money on county recorder fees

Ernest J. Dronenburg, Jr.

SAN DIEGO (Press Release) — Effective January 1, 2018, pursuant to Senate Bill 2 (SB2 –Atkins) certain documents for recording at your County Recorder office will be charged an additional $75 fee that can go as high as $225 per transaction above the current recording fees.

San Diego County Assessor/Recorder/Clerk Ernest J. Dronenburg reminded constituents on Wednesday that as they put their financial house in order at the end of the year, they should consider recording now to save themselves anywhere from $75 to $225.
Dronenburg said, “The Senate Bill 2 fee increase will raise recording costs upwards of 300% for a significant amount of documents recorded for transactions, such as, foreclosures, paying off a home mortgage, refinancing a mortgage for a more affordable payment, and when a small business owner records a lien.”

Dronenburg continued, “I try to alert my constituents to possible savings whenever I can and want to make sure they know about the increase while there is still time to record now and save.”

Dronenburg concluded, “My staff will be here working overtime to ensure top customer service in reviewing and recording documents that meet all requirements in a timely manner.”

Dronenburg’s County Recording staff are available in any of the five County Offices located in Downtown San Diego, Kearny Mesa, Chula Vista, El Cajon, and San Marcos. Offices are open 8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m., Monday – Friday. Recorder offices will be closed December 25, 2017, for the legal holiday. For more information, please call (619) 236-3771 or email [email protected].
