Kentucky Recording Costs Increase Across the Commonwealth

Recording Costs Increase Across the Commonwealth


As of January 1, 2020, the costs for recording certain documents with county clerks across Kentucky have increased.   Most notably, the cost to record a judgment lien or a release of a judgment lien has increased from $13 to $46.  A complete list of all new recording fees in Kentucky can be found here.
