Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Counties Code. Provides that on and after January 1, 2019, a county shall adopt and implement a predictable fee schedule that eliminates surcharges or fees based upon the individual attributes of documents to be recorded with the county recorder. Provides that fees for standard documents are divided into 5 classifications of document class flat fees, which are inclusive of county and State fees required for each recorded document. Provides for methods that the non-predictable fees may be increased prior to adopting document class flat fees. Provides that prior to increasing a document class flat fee, a cost study must be completed showing that the increase is needed because the document class flat fees are not sufficient to cover the cost of providing the service. Defines "standard document" and "nonstandard document". Effective immediately.

House Floor Amendment No. 1
Replaces everything after the enacting clause. Reinserts the provisions of the introduced bill with the following changes: Provides for how predictable fee schedules are initially and subsequently approved. Provides that if an ordinance or resolution adopts a document class flat fee that exceeds $21, the county board shall obtain from the clerk or recorder an analysis of the average fees collected for the recording of each of the document classifications based on the 3 previous years of recording data or the 3 previous years from the date of a cost study upon the adoption of the ordinance or resolution. Provides that the county board shall set document class flat fees based upon the data or cost study (rather than requiring the clerk or recorder to provide this analysis and the county board to set document class flat fees during the process of transitioning into the predictable fee). Provides that in order to raise a document class flat fee, a cost study must show that the fees allowed are not sufficient to cover the cost of providing the service related to the document class flat fee for which is to be increased. Effective immediately.
