About the Register of Deeds

The Register of Deeds Office is a county office where all transactions having to do with land are recorded and maintained so the public is made aware of their existence. Also, financial statements are filed on personal property under the Uniform Commercial Code (UCC).

The Register of Deeds Office is administered by a person called the register of deeds, who in turn has a deputy and a staff of persons who perform various duties. The register of deeds is an elected official who makes certain the documents are recorded properly according to the laws of the State of Kansas and maintains and preserves those records.

Requesting Information

The register of deeds or their staff would be more than happy to answer whatever questions you may have. It is better if you personally visit the office. However, if you cannot, you may obtain certain information over the phone or via email.

There are certain kinds of information that can only be answered by an attorney or abstractor. It would not be feasible to have the information given to you by one who is not qualified to give legal advice.

Basically, the Register of Deeds Office is a recording agency only and therefore the information it gives out is limited to that which is contained in the records.

We now accept Electronic Filings.  If you wish to eRecord, please contact our vendor Simplifile at 1-800-460-5657.
