EFFECTIVE 08/01/2023

We received Notification that the temporary surcharge portion ($21.25) of the Judicial Computer Project fee (JCP/ATJ/CJEA/OAG) that was authorized in 42 Pa. C.S.§3733.2 will expire on July 31, 2023. As a result, the temporary surcharge of $21.25 will no longer be collected. This means that instead of a JCP fee of $40.25, the JCP fee is $19.00. We are informed that this temporary surcharge is expected to be reauthorized as part of the overall Pennsylvania state budget.
The Notification about this change was received at the last minute without any pre-warning. We are aware that this will cause many of you to recalculate your recording fees so that correct fees are sent with recordings. Please know that we have no choice but to reject recordings that do not have the correct recording fees (calculated with the $19.00 JCS fee).
Recorder of Deeds:
JCS documents: Deeds in any form; Mortgages; Assignment of Mortgages; Release of Mortgage; Mortgage Satisfaction Pieces; Installment Sales Agreements; Leases for a term of thirty (30) years or longer; Easements; Rights of Way.

Clerk of Orphans’ Court: All first filings for Adoptions, Small Estates, Trusts, Guardianships, and Minors’ Estates
It is our hope that we will receive a prompt Notification about any surcharge reauthorization once it is determined so that we may notify our customers with the information.

All probates will be by appointment only. For now, probates will be processed during a Zoom meeting. Please contact the office for details.
