Office of the County Recorder

Notice to our Customers

Soon we will be implementing a change in how the County Recorder’s Office processes credit card transactions.  A PCI compliant third party merchant service will be utilized for all transactions paid by credit card.  A service fee will be added to the cost of the transaction by the merchant provider, to be paid by the customer. 

The County Recorder’s Office will not receive any portion of the service fee.

Welcome to the Washoe County Recorder’s Office! It is an honor and a privilege to serve the citizens of Washoe County.

The mission of the Recorder's Office is to record, permanently preserve, and provide convenient access to public records, with superior quality and efficient customer service.

The public records located in your County Recorder's Office include documents related to real property, such as deeds and deeds of trust, homesteads, liens, easements and many others. We are also responsible for recording maps, mining documents and marriage certificates.

We hope that you will find our website to be a good resource for information, forms, access to the public records and links to other departments.

The staff in the Recorder’s Office is available to assist you in person, over the phone or by email.

We look forward to and welcome your comments!
