Recorder's Office

I just paid off my house. How do I get my deed?

Unlike the title to a car, possession of the deed does not in itself imply ownership of real property. Therefore, the original deed identifying you as the owner is typically retained by the homeowner at the time of occupancy. If at any time you'd like an official plain or certified copy of your deed, please contact our copy department at 775-328-3660 with the document number and we can mail or fax it to you. If you are unsure of the document number, you may contact the assessor's office for a title history of the property or stop by the Recorder's Office Library to research.

Additionally, once a mortgage is satisfied (paid off), a reconveyance or satisfaction of mortgage document is typically sent by the lender to be recorded.
