Records Management

The Recorder's Office records and maintains various documents such as:
  • 28E and Drainage Agreements
  • Affidavits
  • Articles of Incorporation
  • Assignments and Releases
  • Bills of Sale
  • Condemnations
  • Contracts
  • Deeds
  • Easements
  • Federal and State Tax Liens
  • Leases

These documents are generally filed through an attorney's office. They must be formatted properly and be accompanied by the proper fee payment. In addition, the Auditor's fee on transfer of property as well as real estate transfer tax is collected on conveyances of property, a portion of which is retained in the county's general fund.
