Are there special requirements for recording deeds in Wayne County?
Yes. A tax certification form must accompany all deeds presented for recording. The tax form can be downloaded online.

All deeds must have - on the first page - the person or company that prepared the document. The deed should show the address of the Grantors and Grantees '. The deed should include language as to whether or not the property is the Grantor's Primary Residence. The top margin should be 3" and the sides and bottom margin should be at least 1/4". The font size should be no smaller than 9 points. If a document is going to be returned by mail, we request a self-addressed, stamped envelope
