Register of Deeds

The Register of Deeds Office is the place people come to record documents, research records, and even to get their passport.  The Register of Deeds, is governed by statute, and it is an important component of the private property system. Because it is limited in nature to the legislative grant of authority and responsibility, the office cannot accept just any document for recording: nor can it simply charge whatever fee thought appropriate.

The primary function of the office is the recording of real estate related documents, deeds, mortgages, assignments of mortgages or other interests in real estate, easements, or other documents involving real estate. The register of deeds' responsibility is to "have custody of and safely keep and preserve all books, records, deeds, maps, papers and microphotographs" submitted for recording. (K.S.A. 19-1204) The office is also the repository for "maps and plats of cities, subdivisions or additions to the same within (each) county." (K.S.A. 2010 Supp. 19-1207)
