The Register of Deeds Office is where people record documents relating to land transactions. You may search our records by name or legal description. We do not index our records by street address or parcel ID numbers.
There are several types of deeds, land contracts, mortgages, liens and lease agreements recorded in the Register of Deeds Office. Once recorded, the originals are returned and the image of the document becomes a permanent and public record. This office DOES NOT PREPARE DOCUMENTS and DOES NOT ANSWER LEGAL QUESTIONS. Please contact an attorney if you need legal assistance.
Documents may be hand delivered to the office or mailed in for recording. Appropriate fees and self-addressed stamped envelopes must accompany the recordings. Checks should be made payable directly to the Register of Deeds for the correct amount. Please thoroughly check all documents to make sure they meet Michigan's requirements for recording. Below you will find links to helpful recording information.
