Recorder

Responsibilities
The County Recorder keeps and maintains accurate land records that are current, legible, and easily accessible. An important aspect of the Recorder’s work is to index each document so it may be readily located within the official confines of the office. Accurate indexing makes it possible for persons searching land records to find the documents necessary to establish a “chain of title” (history of ownership) and ensures that any debts or encumbrances against the property are evident.

These invaluable records are utilized by:
General public
Attorneys
Historians
Genealogists
Land title examiners

Without the work of the County Recorder in recording, safekeeping, and organizing all documents in a competent and logical manner, it would be nearly impossible to purchase land and be assured of a clear title or to lend money with land as security.
