The County Recorder’s Office is responsible for the recording of real property records,
voter registration, early balloting, and various other tasks.
REAL PROPERTY RECORDS:
The Real Property Records include transfers of ownership, liens, leases, assignments,
judgments, and any other type of document having to do with real property. Also recorded
are UCC Financing Statements on certain types of personal property loans, mining
records, powers of attorney, agreements, and numerous other documents. Upon acceptance
of the documents and the proper recording fee (see fee schedule), the documents are
key entered into a multi-reference index system. The documents are then optically
scanned, and an archival silver film is created for archive storage. The index and
the images of the documents are available to the public during business hours.

The Recorder also files subdivision maps and record of survey maps.
