Recording Fee Schedule

posted in: Mortgages & Conveyances | 0

Date: July 19th, 2017

To: Customers of the St. Landry Parish Clerk of Court’s Office

Subject: Act No. 173 – Recording Fees

Effective August 1, 2017, Act No. 173 of the Regular Session of the Louisiana Legislature will become effective.  Act No. 173 amended the recording fees being charged by all Clerks in the state since 2001 and is mandatory.

The purpose of the act was to set uniform fees throughout the state which allows lenders to more accurately comply with Federal truth in lending laws requiring accurate disclosure on loan documents.  The bill which became law was originally proposed by the State Bankers Association and Land Title Association in 2016.

Please remember though these are recording fees they will affect advance deposit amounts in civil cases if there are recordings associated with the suit.

We have attached a copy of the new recording fees for your convenience.

Sincerely,

Charles Jagneaux

St. Landry Parish Clerk of Court
