Fee Schedule

All fees are due and payable prior to filing.

Effective as of January 1, 2019, the Russell County Register of Deeds office will no longer collect mortgage registration fees. We will however still charge recording fees. (Recording fees remain the same.) If a mortgage is filed as a capped mortgage, please remember we still require an affidavit to verify the mortgage at the time of filing.

Our copy rates will remain at 0.75 per page, with a $1.50 fee to mail, fax, or email documents.
