Requirements for Recording Documents

  • Must be an original document with original signatures. A copy cannot be recorded.

  • All documents must be acknowledged (notarized) in accordance with Wyoming Law.

  • A WYOMING STATEMENT OF CONSIDERATION disclosing the financial information of the transaction must accompany any transfer of land by deed.  Please go to the State of Wyoming’s link http://taxappeals.state.wy.us/FinalDraft.pdfto download the “Wyoming Statement of Consideration” form and receive instructions on how to complete the form. It’s the buyer’s responsibility to fully complete the Statement which is a confidential document used by the County Assessor to determine market value of all property in the county.

  • When recording a warranty deed, quitclaim deed, notice of sale, contract for deed, agreement or any other instrument used to transfer land, Fremont County requests that you complete a Fremont County Land Division Affidavit.  This form will not be recorded with your document and is offered in an educational effort to expand knowledge of the subdivision laws of the state and county.

  • Documents must be clearly readable and reproducible.

  • Names must be printed or typed under all signatures except notaries and witnesses.

  • Document type should be in the document title.

By statute we are only a recording office and therefore can not provide forms, perform searches or provide legal advice on any documents you may wish to record or verify that they are “legal”. You may wish to consult a lawyer or a title company when preparing or researching information within land records.
