If sufficient space is not provided for the necessary recording information and certification on a document, such information shall be placed on an additional sheet and such sheet shall be counted as a page.

The document shall be of sufficient legibility to produce a clear and legible reproduction.  If a document is judged not to be of sufficient legibility, such document shall be accompanied by an exact copy thereof which shall be of sufficient legibility to produce a clear and legible reproduction and which shall be recorded contemporaneously with the document and shall be counted as additional pages.  The Register of Deeds may reject any document which is not sufficient legibility.
