The form must have the grantor’s signature . The signing must take place in the presence of a notary public, who must also fill out their part of the document and append the seal and signature.
After filling out and signing, the form must be sent to the Recorder’s Office in the County to which the real property belongs.

1. Fill in the Form Placeholder and Recipient Details
After the words “FILED FOR RECORD AT REQUEST OF,” write the name of the person filling out the form.
Further, after “WHEN RECORDED RETURN TO,” enter details of the person who should receive the document after passing the registration procedure in the Recorder’s Office:
2. Identify the Grantor
Enter the full name of the grantor. According to the law, it is possible to have several grantors, and a legal entity can also act like a Grantor.
3. Place the Amount
After the words “consideration of,” you need to write the amount paid to the Grantor. Sometimes, the process takes place without transferring money. In this case, write zero.
4. Identify the Grantee
Enter the full name of the grantee.
5. Name the County
You need to write the name of the county where the real property is located.
6. Describe the Property
It is necessary to indicate the address and the legal description of the property in full.
7. Sign the Document and have it Certified by a Notary
Local laws demand that the grantor signs the form in the presence of a notary public. The notary fills out part of the document and also appends their signature, thereby certifying it.
8. Register the Form
Next, send the document and its attachments to the Nevada County Recorder’s Office. You need to select the Office where the real property is located. Check in advance if your county has any special registration rules or fees that must be paid.
