County Recorder

Function: noun

The county recorder is an office in the county clerk's office that keeps records of official documents. The county recorder records oaths of notaries public, as well as keeping records of notarized deeds of trust and other deeds effecting real property. Additionally, when a notary is done with their commission, all of their journals must be submitted to the county recorder's office for safe keeping. If someone has an inquiry about a particular notarization, the county recorder can look up the corresponding specific journal entry and make a photocopy of it for a small fee.
