 Recorder of Deeds

The Carbon County Recorder of Deeds office is a County government office which is run by the Recorder of Deeds, an elected official, and his/her staff.

The basic operation of this office is very important for preserving and maintaining all land records, which include, but are not limited to:

Deeds: a document which is recorded to show ownership of property.

Mortgages: a document which is recorded when an owner borrows money against their property.

Easements and Right-of-Ways: a document which is recorded to allow any person or company the right to go over or under your property.

Most documents recorded in this office pertain to property. The documents will all be copied and scanned into our computer system. After the documents are scanned into the system, the process is to index (type all the information from the document in to the system) information. Verification is the last step taken. This is a process in which all the information that has been typed into the system is printed out and someone double checks the document with the print out to avoid any errors in typing. Once a document is marked verified, the computer now stores the information and when enough documents have been recorded and scanned into the system, the computer will ask you to write a disc to save the information as an extra backup. The state archives have not yet approved a computer as a means of accurate storage, so in order to abide by state law; we have to write one extra disc which is sent out to a company to be transferred onto a microfilm. This type of storage is allowed by the state.

The recorder of deeds also will assist the public in obtaining copies of their documents which they have misplaced or lost. We can also help you trace back your property and all the previous owners and purchase price of the property.

Other documents which are recorded in our office are notary bonds and commissions, veteran’s discharges, financing statements, elected officials bonds, satisfactions of mortgages, release of mortgages, and power of attorney.
