The County Recorder was one of the first offices created by the Constitution of the State of Indiana in 1816. The Recorder is elected to a 4-year term, with a 2 term limitation. It is the primary duty of the County Recorder to record instruments submitted for recording and maintain those records for perpetuity.
Effective July 22, 2013 - To allow time for staff to process deeds for recording by 4:15 p.m., the Auditor's Office will not accept documents for recording after 4:00 p.m. The Recorder's Office deadline for recording is 4:15 p.m. The only exception will be for Mechanics Liens.
The Recorder's Staff will not search public records or give any legal opinions. If you know the recording information, you may request a copy from our office. Otherwise, you may come in and use one of our public access computers.
You may now search our recorded documents online. Our document index extends back to January of 1985 and document images extend back to January of 1996. We have partnered with Doxpop, so if you would like to learn more, please visit their website.
