About Our Office

As one of the first offices created by the Constitution of the State of Indiana in 1816, the County Recorder’s primary function is to maintain permanent public records submitted for recording. These records are the legal basis for determining ownership of real property. These documents, sometimes called instruments, include mortgages, deeds, liens, military discharges, subdivision plats, leases, bonds, powers of attorney, releases, assignments, contracts and many other miscellaneous documents.

Instruments are recorded either for giving legal public notice for their existence or for safekeeping and future reference. It is the primary duty of County Recorders to record instruments submitted for recording and maintain those records for perpetuity.

The Recorder is a member of the County Commission on Public Records, which has authority over the preservation or deposition of all public records maintained by the county. (IC 5-15-6)
