GLYNN COUNTY REAL ESTATE RECORDING FEES

AS OF JANUARY 1, 2020

Effective January 1, 2020, filing fees for real estate deed documents, UCCs, certain types of liens, and plats are changing.  House Bill 288, which modifies O.C.G.A § 15-6-77, was passed by the Georgia General Assembly during the 2019 legislative session and institutes a "flat" or "predictable" filing fee structure.

The Authority has modified the calculations for estimated filing fees on our eFile portal, https://efile.gsccca.org 
The following estimated fee calculation will be implemented January 1, 2020.

UCCs 
  • UCC1 - $25.00
  • UCC1 with an assignment - $50.00
  • UCC3 - $25.00
  • UCC5 - $25.00
DEEDS

  • If a cancellation, satisfaction, release or assignment, then $25.00 x the number of requested cancellations, satisfactions, release or assignments.
LIENS
  • $25.00 per filing
  • If a cancellation, satisfaction, release or assignment, then $25.00 x the number of requested cancellations, satisfactions, release or assignments
  • If a tax lien filed by a state or local government agency, then the following formula is used:
* $5.00 per filing
  $2.00 per additional page
$2.00 per cross-reference
If a cancellation, satisfaction, release or assignment, $5.00 x the number of requested cancellations, satisfactions, release or assignments.
