Recorder's Office

Does the Recorder's Office keep original documents?

No. If the document is recorded in person at our office, the original is handed back to the customer after being recorded and scanned. If received through the mail, the original document is immediately returned after recording to the return address on the envelope (or to the address indicated on a return envelope, if provided). An eRecorded document is electronically returned to the submitter right after recording.
