Recorder

All non-vaccinated customers are required to wear a mask when visiting our building at 69 Greene Street. 
 
Those wishing to drop off Documents for recording, please use our Drop Box on the 3rd Floor.  There will be limited to 1 walkthrough per individual/company per day (per Auditor and Recorder).  Of course you may still use the mail, overnight or e-filing through Simplifile (e-filing is mortgages and mortgage related documents only).  
 
We still encourage you to do most of your searching from home/office. Those wishing to examine Recorder's records you may access our index books dated 1925-1983 via the link shown below.  Our index from 1984 to date is on our Recorders Document Search - link is below - and images are available from 1995 to date.

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.
