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.
