Real Estate

The Real Estate Department records various real estate-related documents such as deeds, mortgages, plats, liens, and leases that become public records. They also record certain documents unrelated to real estate, such as notary bonds, the general power of attorney, and certificates of military discharge.

Recording Documents

The Real Estate Department can only accept original documents or certified copies of court documents for filing in person, by mail, and electronically. No Xerox copies are accepted for filing. All signatures must be original. The fee for recording documents is $15 for the first page and $5 for each additional page. Payments can be made in person by credit card, money order, cash, or check. Credit card payments can also be made online using the payment portal. There are specific mandatory requirements to record documents. Learn more of those recording requirements.

We have two computers available for public use to research land records. Please note only records from 1994 to present may be reviewed on our website. Documents before 1994 will need to be researched in person. You must book an appointment using the link below. Only one booked appointment per week is allowed.
