Frequently Asked Questions

What happens to my document after it is recorded?

The Recorder’s Office is required to make a permanent record of all documents.  All documents are scanned into the computer system for immediate viewing the day after recording.  Copies are also stored on microfilm for archival purposes.

Once the images on the computer & microfilm have been checked for accuracy, the originals are returned to the requester in approximately two to three weeks.
