Notice - Change in Document Format Requirements for Recorded Documents

Effective January 1, 2024, per HB 2029 revising Oregon Revised Statute 205.232*; Documents presented for recording must have a font size no smaller than 10-point type. To avoid documents being rejected, returned, or charged additional fees, please ensure your document meets the minimum formatting requirements.

*ORS 205.232 is amended to read:
205.232. Except as provided in ORS 205.327, a county clerk shall not accept any instrument for
recording unless the text of the instrument is typed, written or printed in 10-point type or
larger on paper that is not larger than 14 inches long and 8-1/2 inches wide and which paper is of
sufficient quality for recording photographically. However, this section does not apply to out-of-state
notarial acts or to certified copies of public records presented to a county clerk for recording.
