Kootenai County Recording Information

Document Formatting Requirements
The Recorder’s Office keeps records of all documents recorded in Kootenai County. Various types of deeds, mortgages, and many other documents pertaining to real property located in Kootenai County can be recorded with the Recorder.

Recording gives notice: Every conveyance of real property acknowledged or proved, and certified, and recorded as prescribed by law, from the time it is filed with the recorder for record, is constructive notice of the contents thereof to subsequent purchasers and mortgagees.

Every conveyance of real property acknowledged or proved, and certified, and recorded as prescribed by law, and which is executed by one who thereafter acquires an interest in said real property by a conveyance which is constructive notice as aforesaid, is, from the time such latter conveyance is filed with the recorder for record, constructive notice of the contents thereof to subsequent purchasers and mortgagees.

Idaho does not have a statutory deed format. A document of conveyance is a warranty deed by virtue of words of warrant being included in the instrument. A quit claim deed is an instrument of conveyance that does not make any warranties and simply releases the grantor’s current right, title, and interest.

DOCUMENT REQUIREMENTS

• A conveyance of real estate is made by an instrument in writing and subscribed by the party disposing of the real estate.

• A page should not exceed 8.5×14 inches and should not be smaller than 8.5×11 inches. Each page should be typewritten or be in legible writing. Printing should be single-sided only and in a font size of at least 12 point to ensure legibility.

• A recordable document must be notarized and have original signatures of grantor and notary.

• If a document is conveying real property, it must have the grantee’s name and current mailing address listed.

• A certified copy from the Recorder’s office is as good as an original (except for a birth certificate or death certificate, which must come from the Idaho Vital Statistics).

• On the first page, provide a 2 inch top margin. All other margins should be at least 1 inch.

• Provide a document title below the top margin on the first page.

• A legal description of the real property should be provided on the first page or submitted with the document as an attachment.

A summary of an instrument creating an interest in, or affecting the title to or possession of real property may be recorded if the requirements are substantially met. A summary should be signed and acknowledged by all parties to the original. The following information should be clearly stated in the summary: the names of the parties to the original, a description of the interest or interests in real property created by the instrument, and the legal description of the property. If the requirements are met, the summary may be recorded and, as to the contents of the summary only, it shall have the same force and effect as if the original had been recorded, and constructive notice shall be deemed to be given concerning the contents of the summary and the existence of the instrument to any subsequent purchasers that acquire an interest in the real property.

RECORDING FEES

For the first page of an instrument, the fee is $10. Each additional page is $3.

Copies of recorded documents are $1 per page.

Each certificate under seal is $1, when required.

For a release or assignment wherein more than one document is released or assigned in an instrument, the fee is $1 for each additional release or assignment.

History

Kootenai County was formed on December 22, 1864, from the northern section of Nez Perce County. It was named after the Kootenai, because it lies in the traditional area of settlement of the tribe.[5]

Once comprising most of the western Panhandle, the county’s present boundaries were established in 1915, following the formation of Benewah County to the south. Bonner County to the north had been formed in 1907 from Kootenai County; Bonner County was also divided in 1915 with the formation of Boundary County.

Directly east of Kootenai County is Shoshone County and the Silver Valley, which has had a history of disputes between miners and mine owners.
