We sent a letter a few years ago, saying we won't accept
prepayment. Of course a few still send it, but if we don't remember
receiving the payment, we send the document back and tell them to
resubmit the fee. It just got to be too cumbersome, especially when
the discharge didn't show up for several weeks or even months.

attorneys that I won't keep track of that for them. But, if they
note it in their cover letter, and then later when they send the
discharge and a copy of the cover letter that said we already received
the fee, I will take them for their word.

- Lately when I receive documents to be recorded it will have extra
money for future recorded documents from attorney’s. I don’t mind
doing this once in a blue moon but it seems to be happening more and more
and now I have an outstanding Mylar along with other discharges to keep
track of. I wanted to know what other Town’s do in this
situation? Did you set a policy saying no prepayments on documents
to be recorded or do you grin and bear it.
- Thank you.
