What happens to a document that is brought into the Recorders Office?
A document goes through a number of steps before the document is returned to the patron.

1. The document is checked for dates, signatures, spelling of names, acknowledgments and, depending on the type of instrument, any other information that is needed before recording.
2. If all information is correct and meets state statute and formatting requirements the document is accepted and priced according to the number of pages it contains.
3. The document is then clocked with the date and time, given a document number and certified on the top of the first page.
4. The document is scanned.
5. The document is indexed into the computer system by Grantor and Grantee name.
6. The document images are proofed and indexing verified, to see that they were correctly entered into the computer system and then the documents are returned to the proper address.
