Documents recorded become permanent public record and consist of real property transfers, marriage licenses, plats, liens, etc. Questions related to the type of document needed or how to fill out a document for a particular transaction should be directed to a title company or private attorney. The Recording Department staff does not have the legal training to ensure accuracy with these questions.
