IMPORTANT NOTICE: Per N.J.S.A. 22A:4-4.1, “For indexing any recorded instrument in excess of 5 parties, per each name in excess of 5 a $6.00 fee will be assessed.“

Following the recent Appellate Court decision in the case of New Jersey Land Title Association v. Dana Rone, County Register of the County of Essex (Dkt. No. A-5028-16T1), the e-recording convenience fee will be suspended, effective April 1, 2019, until further notice.

This web-site is hosted by the Monmouth County Clerk and is dedicated to the recording of all documents regarding real property. The ultimate goal is to allow total electronic recording of specific documents along with various levels of electronic recording for all documents regarding real property. This service is not limited to Monmouth County; there are many other counties involved and they will be joining this site as their individual schedules allow.

Important Message to Level I submitters: Monmouth County will no longer accept the Level I submissions as of February 1, 2017. The Clerk's office encourages you to start using Level II submissions. Fill out the Level II Profile and the Payment Setup forms and send to the Clerk's office to enable Level II on your account.

Level II will include a scanned image of the document, supplied by the sender, along with the Document Summary Sheet. Recording & indexing will take place as usual and the recorded image is returned to sender with all recording information electronically stamped on it. Again all information can be tracked on this web-site.

As we continue to progress, Level III will be true electronic recordation for discharge of mortgages and certain other documents. Our goal is to provide the best possible service to the people of New Jersey and to make the recording process as timely and efficient as possible.

Thank You
