The County Recorder was the first office created by the Constitution of the State of Indiana in 1816.
The County Recorder's function is to maintain permanent public records involving a wide variety of instruments. Examples of recorded documents include deeds, mortgages, contracts, affidavits, mechanics liens, military discharges, subdivision plats, surveys, leases, public and private bonds, powers of attorney, Federal tax liens, and assorted miscellaneous documents. Generally, all of these instruments are recorded either for giving legal public notice of their existence or for safekeeping and future reference. The Recorder must enforce more than 1000 sections of State Law in the Indiana Revised Code.
Office Hours: 8:00 am to 4:00 pm Monday thru Friday
...Documents coming in after 3:30 pm may be processed the next business day.
The office is located on the main level of the county court house.
By State Statue, the County Recorder maintains and preserves all legal documents affecting title to real property. Any instrument submitted for recording, providing it meets essential requirements, are recorded. These records are the legal basis for determining ownership of real property.
The County Recorder prepares and furnishes official copies of any record or instrument when required by law, ordered by the court, or requested by any parties. All documents are public information with the exception of Military Discharge records. Since the Recorder's office is a State constitutional office, fees charged by the recorder are established under Indiana Code 36-2-7. All transactions are audited by the Indiana State Board of Accounts.
