§ 300. Master form--Definition--Labeling--Filing--Recording--Incorporation by reference--Unrecordable matters
A. A master form shall be any instrument containing forms of covenants, conditions, obligations, powers, or other clauses not being acknowledged nor containing a legal description. Such instrument shall be labeled on the first page as a master form and may be filed and recorded in the office of the county clerk in the same manner as provided for miscellaneous instruments relating to real estate.
B. After recording and indexing of the master form, any of the provisions of such master form may be incorporated by reference in any subsequently recorded instrument. Provided, that, such reference shall state that the master form was recorded in the county in which the subsequently recorded instrument is offered for recording, the date of recording and the book and pages where recorded, and that a copy of such master form was furnished to the persons executing the subsequently recorded instrument. The recording of any subsequently recorded instrument which has so incorporated by reference any of the provisions of a master form properly recorded shall have like effect as if such provisions of the master form so incorporated by reference had been set forth in full in the subsequently recorded instrument.
C. Whenever a subsequently recorded instrument is presented for recording in which is set forth matters purporting to be a copy or reproduction of a master form and such matters are preceded by the words, “do not record or not to be recorded”, and such matters are plainly separated from such instrument in such manner that such matter will not appear upon a photographic reproduction of any page containing any part of the instrument, such matter shall not be recorded by the county clerk when the instrument is recorded. The county clerk shall record only the instrument apart from such matter and shall not be liable for doing such.
