Electronic Recording
The Recorder-Clerk office is proud to celebrate our first year of Electronic Recording!  We began electronic recording in August 2013 and have enjoyed success and growth in this effort since that time.  Our office participates in the California Electronic Recording Transaction Network Authority or CeRTNA, a Joint Powers Authority, which provides a web portal for electronic recording.  Currently over 22 counties in California are part of CeRTNA.  Merced County Clerk-Recorder, Barbara Levey is a member of the CeRTNA Board of Directors.  Merced is an "Agent Only" county which simply means customers utilize an outside agent who manages your account for you and performs all transactions with you.  Currently, approximately 150 customers, using 6 agent firms, are recording electronically with us.  Additionally, Merced County offers G2G or Government to Government electronic recording service for government offices including EDD, BOE, FTB, and Child Support Services.  To use our service, please contact our office at either (209) 385-7627 or for details.

Our office no longer accepts checks as payment except for recordings of documents.  Credit and debit card payments can be accepted in our office.  There is a $2.50 fee for the use of credit and debit cards.
