Affidavit in Aid of Title or Affidavit in Support of Title

County Clerk must NOT file a document in Land Records titled an “Affidavit in Aid of Title” or “Affidavit in Support of Title”. Kentucky Revised Statutes do not authorize the County Clerk to accept this type document, except in very few exceptions. Effective July 12, 2006 county clerks will be authorized to accept the following specific affidavits per Senate Bill 45.

A County Clerk is a ministerial officer. The statutes specify the documents to be recorded and dictate the criteria that a document must possess in order to be recorded. A ministerial officer (County Clerk) should not file any document unless the document is recognized and permitted by statute. It is a myth that any document can be recorded at the county clerk’s office if it is signed and notarized.
