The North Carolina General Assembly recently amended G.S. 161-10(a) to increase the fee for recording Deeds of Trust effective October 1, 2008. The recording fee for the first page will increase from $12.00 to $22.00 and $3.00 for each additional page. The required $2.00 probate fee will still be included, making the total recording fee for the first page $24.00 and $3.00 for each additional page.

In addition where a deed of trust includes another instrument such as an assignment of leases or a request for notice there will be a $10 fee per additional instrument.This change was signed into law on July 16, 2008 under House Bill 2436.
