There is a cover page.
If there isn’t a space already provided, a cover page is required for the County Recorder to place their Endorsement once it’s been accepted.

All signatures and/or penmanship is legible.
Similar to Notary Seals, ensure all signatures and any handwritten sections can be clearly and easily read when in black & white.
All signatures have a name printed underneath.
