Register of Deeds

The Register of Deeds Office is the place where people record documents relating to land transactions. 
Different types of deeds as well as land contracts, mortgages, liens and lease agreements are recorded at the Register of Deeds Office.
After a document is recorded, it becomes a public record, which can be reviewed or copied by any person. Of course, the Register of Deeds Office does not keep the original deed or mortgage; instead, the transaction is recorded in a book, called a "liber", which is stamped on the deed or document.
A copy or image of the document is then made for permanent record.
