- Effective immediately, Sussex County will no longer accept void requests. Once a document is on record, it will stay on record. If a document needs to be corrected due to error at the recorder’s office, the submitter will not be charged. However, if the error is determined to be at the fault of the submitter, corrections will need to be submitted through re-record and will be charged accordingly.
- All payments must be correct or they will be returned. We no longer issue refunds.
- Deeds received to be recorded within town limits without the proper Town Stamps will be returned.
- The recording window closes at 4:00 PM. Documents must be submitted in person, at the recording window, prior to that time.
