What are the requirements for filing a document?

Per state statute, a document must have a legal description, have original signatures, be notarized with an original seal, and have the correct filing fee, in order to be filed. 

Any deed, in which real estate is being transferred, must be accompanied by a Kansas Sales Validation Questionnaire when filing. This is a form required by the state to assist the County Appraiser in assessing the property.
