Statutes covering Assignments of Rents/Leases – See KRS 289.441 & KRS 304.7-230)

Indexing information: The document is indexed in the general index to deeds and mortgages under both parties. The borrower or assignor is the first party, the lender or assignee is the second party.

OAG 80-3 indicates this document may be filed in the deed, mortgage or miscellaneous book. It is the discretion of the clerk. However, the OAG recommends the Mortgage book.

“*The legal process fee of $3.00 is included in this document also due to the wording in OAG 80-3. “The instrument involved here is a unique creature unto itself, but it contains the characteristics of both a deed and a mortgage. It is a straightforward transfer of an interest in realty for a term and thus is like a deed. Yet it also stands as a security for an obligation…”. Both deed and mortgage require a legal process fee.
