ALERT! If you plan to record a deed before Proposition 19 becomes effective on February 16, 2021, please note that February 15, 2021 is President's Day, a legal holiday, and our Office is closed. We expect a high volume of document submissions during that time, any discrepancies or errors found in the process may require additional time to clarify or correct, which may cause further delay on the recording timeline. Early recording is highly recommended. We will be extending recording hours until 4:00 PM on February 12th to assist in accommodating our customers.
