Message From the County Recorder

The Recorder's office is the official land records office for Rock Island County. Records date back to the mid-1800s. The United States Constitution provides every individual the freedom and right to own property in their own name. That freedom is protected in the Office of the Recorder by permanently recording all original documents pertaining to property ownership and real property transactions within Rock Island County. This makes the County Recorder an integral part of property ownership. Instruments filed with the Recorder's office includes deeds, mortgages, releases and assignments, property liens, as well as assorted federal, state and local liens. Other documents included are veterans' discharge papers, corporation papers, and instruments pertaining to the Uniform Commercial Code. The Recorder's office is also responsible for the recordation and storage of subdivision plats, land surveys and monument records.

Please feel free to contact us with any questions.
