Baca Office of the Clerk and Recorder of Deeds Recording Requirements.

Before starting any real estate transaction, either as a buyer (grantee) or seller (grantor), review the state’s laws governing deeds and real property. In Colorado, find this information in C.R.S. 38 (2012).

In Baca County, Colorado, real estate deeds are recorded with the office of the clerk and recorder. The office of the clerk and recorder is responsible for recording real estate deeds, mining claims, and other documents pertaining to real property located in Baca County.

I. Recording Statute

No unrecorded conveyance will be valid against any person with rights in or to such real property who records first and those holding rights under such person, except between the parties to the instrument and against those having notice of the instrument prior to the acquisition of such rights.

In all cases where by law an instrument may be filed in the office of a county clerk and recorder, the filing of the instrument in such office shall be equivalent to the recording thereof, and the recording of the instrument shall be equivalent to the filing of the instrument.

II. Standards for Recording a Real Estate Deed

• Any person, body politic, or association of persons which is entitled to hold real estate or interest in real estate is authorized to convey the same to another person, body politic, or association of persons by deed.

• Any deed or other instrument relating to or affecting title to real property must be properly acknowledged.

• The grantor to a real estate deed must sign and acknowledge it.

• Submit deeds on white 8.5 x 11 inch paper. Real estate deeds may be on paper as large as 8.5 x 14 inches. Anything larger will result in additional fees. Use a readable font size when preparing a document.

• All documents received for recording should have a top margin of at least 1-inch and ½ inch side and bottom margins.

• If there is a newly created legal description of real property in a deed, include the name and address of the person who drafted the legal description.

• A notation of the legal mailing address of the grantee must be included in the deed. A deed submitted to the county clerk that does not contain this information will not be recorded and will be returned to the party submitting the document.

• All documents of title relating to real property, including instruments creating a lien on real property, shall include the street address or comparable identifying numbers of the property. This information is used as an aid to identification and is to be given immediately before or after the legal description of the real property. A preparer of a document can also include, as an identification aid, the assessor’s schedule number or parcel number relating to the real property.

• If any ambiguity results from the inclusion of a street address, identifying numbers, or assessor’s schedule or parcel number, the legal description of the property will govern.

• A deed for the conveyance of real property must have the grantor’s name and address, the consideration paid for the property, the grantee’s name and address, and a legal description of the real property.

III. Conveyances

Any person claiming right or title to lands, tenements, or hereditaments, although he may be out of possession, and notwithstanding there may be adverse possession thereof, may sell, transfer, and convey his interest in and to the property in as full and complete a manner as if he were in the actual possession of the lands and premises intended to be conveyed.

Warranty Deed: In a warranty deed, when the words “warrant the title” are used, this means that the grantor covenants (a) that at the time of conveyance, he/she was lawfully seized of an indefeasible estate in fee simple in and to the property described in the deed and he as good right and power to convey the same; (b) that the property was free from all encumbrances, except as stated in the instrument; (c) that he warrants to the grantee, his heirs, and assigns, the quiet and peaceable possession of such property and will defend the title thereto against all persons who may lawfully claim the same.

The covenants in a warranty deed are binding upon the grantor, his heirs, and personal representatives as if expressly written in the instrument.

Bargain and Sale Deed: When the words “warrant the title to the same” are omitted from a warranty deed, the deed will have the same force and effect of a bargain and sale deed, without covenants of warranty and will pass the after-acquired title of the grantor. When the words “warrant the title against all persons claiming under me” are included in a bargain and sale deed, it will be a covenant that the grantor will warrant and defend the title to the grantee, his heirs, and assigns against all persons claiming to hold title by, through, or under the grantor.

Quitclaim Deed: When executing a quitclaim deed, substitute the word “quitclaim” for “convey,” and omit the words “warrant the title to the same.”

A quitclaim deed in Colorado does not convey land, only the grantor’s present interest in the land. Because of this, a quitclaim deed is not effective to pass to the grantee any right or title acquired by the grantor after the execution of the conveyance.

Covenants that run with the land are covenants of seisin, peaceable possession, freedom from encumbrances, and warranties contained in any conveyance of real estate or any interest therein. These covenants will inure to the benefit of all subsequent purchasers and encumbrancers.

IV. State Documentary Fee

All transfers of property in Colorado are subject to a State Documentary fee. When the total consideration paid by the purchaser exceeds $500, a documentary fee shall be paid at the rate of one cent for each $100, or major fraction thereof, of consideration. Documents that often have documentary fees are warranty deeds, special warranty deeds, quit claim deeds, mine deed, bargain and sale deed, and grant deed.

Treasurer’s deeds, public trustee’s deeds, sheriff’s deeds, and a PT certificate of purchase are exempt from documentary fees.

The consideration amount must be clearly marked on the deed and the transfer declaration.

Some documents may be exempt from the State Documentary fee.

V. Recording Fee Schedule

To record the first page of a document, the fee is $11 (this includes a $1 surcharge that is applied to all documents). Each additional page of the same document is $5.

Documents larger than 8.5 x 14 inches will be $11 for the first page and $10 for each additional page.

If ordered in the county clerk’s office, copies are 25 cents per page. Certified copies are an additional $1.
Colorado explains that its goal with the real property code is to “render titles to real property and every interest therein more secure and marketable, and it is declared to be the policy in this state that this article and all other laws concerning or affecting title to real property and every interest therein and all recorded instruments, decrees, and orders of courts of record, including all proceedings in the suits or causes wherein such orders or decrees have been entered or rendered, shall be liberally construed with the end in view of rendering such titles absolute and free from technical defects so that subsequent purchasers and encumbrancers by way of mortgage, judgment, or otherwise may rely on the record title and so that the record title of the party in possession is sustained and not defeated by technical or strict constructions” (C.R.S. 38-34-101). To boil this down to its basic message, Colorado requires specific information and procedures to ensure that real estate deeds and other documents related to real property function efficiently, and according to the intent of the named parties.

A real estate deed is a legal instrument used to convey ownership in land from one person to another. In most cases, the transfer is considered a fee simple estate, which means the new owner gains absolute ownership and control of the property. Colorado law assumes fee simple estates unless something less is specified in the deed (C.R.S. 38-30-107).

Colorado law provides for several different types of deeds (C.R.S. 38-30-113):
Warranty Deeds
A typical granting clause reads: “AB sells and conveys to CD….” By adding the words “and warrant(s) the title to the same” to the text of the deed, the written instrument becomes a warranty deed, which includes the following covenants of title protection:

• At the time of executing the deed, the grantor owned the property and could rightfully sell it to someone else;

• The real estate was “free and clear from all encumbrances, except as stated in the instrument”;

• The grantor “warrants to the grantee and his heirs and assigns the quiet and peaceable possession of such property and will defend the title thereto against all persons who may lawfully claim the same.”
