The Recorder preserves the official archive of documents relating to legally recordable transactions of events. The Recorder collects documentary transfer tax and conveyance taxes on property sales. Documents are recorded, indexed, digitally archived and made available to the public. The Recorder Division is responsible for the recording of various documents, such as:

  • Deeds
  • Mortgages
  • Court Decrees
  • Liens & Releases
  • Other documents that affect title to real property

By recording a document, the document becomes part of the public records of the County Recorder. The Recorder’s Division will assist the public with accessing this information. Copying and certification costs may apply.

Note: Please note that the Recorder’s Division is unable to give legal advice, such as, what type of document you need or how to complete a document. We recommend that you seek advice from an attorney or real estate professional before you record documents that affect title to property.
