Recording Information

The County Recorder’s office is upgrading the recording system, and will be going live with the new system Monday, February 25, 2019.  Because we will be needing to complete certain steps by 5pm on Friday, February 22, 2019 with the current system, no documents will be accepted for recording after 12:00 pm on Friday, February 22, 2019.  We apologize for any inconvenience.
