About the Recorder's Office

Office hours are Monday through Friday, 8:00 A.M to 5:00 P.M.

Our office will not search by phone. Our records are open to the public, you may come in and search, contact a title company or send a request by mail.

For a search by mail we require a $10.00 search fee per document less than 20 years old, or $29.00 search fee for documents older than 20 years up to 1930. Documents prior to 1930, we recommend a title company be obtained or come into the office and we will show you how to search for this information. A self-addressed stamped envelope or e-mail address must be included with your request to return the search results.  Our staff will search and return all information requested on the day we receive the request.
