The Register of Deeds is where people record documents relating to land transactions.
Different types of deeds, as well as land contracts, mortgages, liens, and lease agreements, are recorded at the Register of Deeds Office.
The Register of Deeds does not keep the original document; instead, the transaction is recorded in a book called a "liber" which is stamped on the document. A copy or image of the document is then made for permanent record.
After a document is recorded it becomes a public record, which may then be viewed by anyone.
We do not prepare documents, nor do we answer legal questions. Please contact an attorney or title company.
