    About The Recorder

    The history of land registration reaches back to medieval times.  The development of land recording systems was convoluted, controversial, and even, at times, bloody.

    From the world's first national land registry system introduced in Holland in 1529, through the publication of The Domesday Book by England's King William the Conqueror (used to improve tax collection) to today's high speed digital recording and delivery of images, Recorders have been working to improve this system that tracks what is for most people the single most important investment they make in their lives - as true in the 21st century as it was in 1529.

    Today, we have a system that functions seamlessly, if not almost transparently, alongside the many commercial interests involved in the transfer of real estate.

    Without the work of the County Recorder in recording, safekeeping and organizing all your real estate documents in a logical manner, it would be nearly impossible to purchase land and be assured of a clear title or to lend money with land as a security.
