About the Office of the County Recorder:

The Office of the County Recorder was created by the First Legislative Assembly of the Territory of Iowa in 1839. Your County Recorder/Registrar continues to maintain official records of documents affecting real estate in order to protect innocent third parties in real estate transactions.

The County Recorder's office is at the hub of the courthouse function to serve you. A significant portion of duties performed by other county officials is dependent on the work performed by your County Recorder.

The Recorder's office is responsible for maintaining official records relating to real estate, handling vital records, selling and issuing registrations, and handling licenses and titles.

The Recorder's office also collects real estate transfer tax on conveyances of property, performs federal and state tax lien searches, collects and reports auditor's fee for the transfer of property, and houses records for genealogy research.
