The Clerk of the Court announces a new service: Customers may record a notice of commencement by facsimile.
In order to begin this service, an escrow account needs to be established to charge recording fees; otherwise, a credit card can be utilized for payment. The notice would then be faxed to any of the clerk's locations for recording. A rejection letter will be faxed back if for any reason the notice cannot be recorded.
Credit card services are provided through myfloridacounty.com with a service fee of 3.2 percent or $2.50 minimum. Visit the clerk's Web site at www.clerk.citrus.fl.us for a complete list of fees and charges. Contact Nancy Cologna, recording department manager, at 341-6469 for information or to establish an escrow account.
