In Connecticut, land records are recorded in the individual town where the property is located, not at the county level.
The charge for recording a land record that does not involve nominee Mortgage Electronic Registration Systems (MERS) is $60.00 for the first page of the document and $5.00 for subsequent pages within the same document. Releases and Assignments of Mortgage for which MERS is the grantor are a $159.00 flat fee. All other documents involving MERS are $159.00 for the first page and $5.00 for each subsequent page within the same document.
***Land records are accepted for recording until 4:45pm daily***
