Opinion No. MW-433
Re:    Penalty   filing   fees
required by 1981 amendment to
article 6626, V.T.C.S.

Dear Mr. Driscoll:

The Sixty-seventh Legislature amended article 6626,
which deals with the recording of certain legal instruments,
subsection (b).   Acts 1981, 67th Leg., ch. 206, at 498.
asked five questions concerning this subsection, which
A deed or other conveyance conveying an interest
in real property, if executed after December 31,
1981, shall contain a mailing address of each
grantee appearing on the document or in a separate
instrument signed by a grantor or grantee and
attached to the document.   Failure to include an
address  of  each  grantee   in  the  document  or
attached instrument does not affect the validity
of the conveyance between the parties to the
document. Any such deed or other conveyance which
fails to include a mailing address of each grantee
appearing in the document or attached instrument
may only be filed for record with the county clerk
of the county in which the real property is
situated after payment of a penalty filing fee
equal to the greater of (1) twice the statutory
filing fee for the filing of such documents with
the county clerk, or (2) the sum of $25.      Upon
acceptance by the county clerk of a deed or other
conveyance for recordation and the payment of the
filing fee as determined by the county clerk, it
shall be conclusively presumed that such deed or
other conveyance meets all filing fee requirements
of this Subsection (b) of this Article 6626,
prerequisite to the lawful filing of a deed or
other conveyance.
