SPECIAL RECORDING FEE (SRF) 98-646

$2.00 fee charged on each and every instrument recorded.

DEED TAX 40-22-1 (c)

Deed tax is 50 cents per each $500.00 or fraction thereof on the value of interest being conveyed. We always round up in increments of $500.00 (example $501.00 would round up to $1,000 and a $1.00 deed tax would be collected.)

VENDOR'S LIEN DEED

To compute the cost of recording a vendor's lien deed, refer to the method noted above. Deed tax on a VLD is figured on the cash consideration (amount paid down - or value of interest conveyed). The mortgage tax is computed as hereinafter set forth on the unpaid balance represented by the vendor's lien.

DEED WITH THE ASSUMPTION OF A MORTGAGE OR VENDOR'S LIEN

The cost of recording is computed as mentioned above and a deed tax is figured on the equity when a recording reference is given as to where the mortgage or vendor's lien is recorded. The original recorded lien must be made to a taxable institution or individual, otherwise tax will be due on the total value of interest being conveyed.

MORTGAGE AND MORTGAGE TAX

The cost of recording a mortgage is the same as recording a deed, that is $2.50 per page (12-19-90 (b) (22)), $1.00 recordation stamp (12-19-90(b)(20)), $2.00 SRF (98-646), plus $10.00 Mobile County Special Tax(87-616). Mortgage tax is figured at the rate of 15 cents per each $100.00 (40-22-2(1) (a) and) b)) or fraction thereof on the amount of the mortgage. We always round up to the next $100.00 (example $100.01 would round up to $200.00 and the mortgage tax due would be 30 cents)

SIMULTANEOUS RECORDING OF DEED AND MORTGAGE (PURCHASE MONEY)

The mortgage tax and fee for recording the mortgage will be calculated as outlined above. The deed tax will be figured on the amount of the sales price exceeding the amount of the mortgage, if the mortgage is made to a taxable concern and the mortgage tax collected. If the mortgage is made to a non-taxable concern then the deed tax will be charged on the total value of interest being conveyed.
