Duties of the County Recorder


The Office of the County Recorder was created by the first legislative assembly of the territory of Iowa in 1839. Your county Recorder maintains official records of documents affecting real estate in order to protect innocent third parties in real estate transactions. A significant portion of the duties performed by other county officials is dependent on the work performed by your County Recorder. Iowa's County Recorders are proud of their tradition and looking forward to the future. The Recorder’s duties are defined by state statues and established by state agencies through administrative actions.
