Register of Deeds

The Register of Deeds is responsible for the safe keeping and preserving of documents. We record Warranty Deeds, Transfer on Death Deeds, Quit Claim Deeds, Mortgages, Mortgage Releases, Affidavits, Death Certificates, Surveys, Subdivision Plats, Easements, Military Discharges and many more.

The Register of Deeds also files financing statements and security agreements on personal property under the uniform commercial code, as well as Federal, State, and Medical liens.

Real estate documents are recorded and filed of record as soon as they are received by e-filing. Mailed or walked in documents stop recording at 4:30 p.m. and are returned to the customer the next day.

For all documents you are recording whether walked into the office or mailed:

  1. All information (no blanks) must be completed on your document prior to presenting it in our office.
  2. The Notary Public acknowledgement must be correctly executed.  
  3. Correct payment presented by check (pay to LV CO ROD), MasterCard, Visa, Discover, or cash (do not mail cash). See the Fee Schedule link for the correct amount of recording fees.
  4. Provide email address and phone for any questions we may have regarding your document.
  5. Provide a copy of a state issued photo ID if your filing conveys property.
  6. Provide a self-addressed stamped envelope if you would like the original document returned after recording. Otherwise, a digital copy of your recorded document will be emailed.
