Recorder of Deeds Public Information

The Carroll County Recorder’s office is the repository for all Carroll County land transactions. The Recorder’s duties include reviewing, processing, recording and delivering back to the submitter all transfers of property and related documents in a timely manner.

We are also responsible for indexing, scanning, microfilming and providing certified copies of surveys, plats, deeds, deeds of trust, assignments, release deeds, powers of attorney, deed restrictions, federal and state tax liens, Uniform Commercial Code fixture filings, and other instruments of writing. The Recorder’s Office also handles marriage licenses and we record military discharge papers at no charge.  The records the Recorder’s Office date back to 1833. We have a public access terminal available for searching the records from 1982 to current. Records prior to 1982 are available by a Grantee/Grantor Index.

Recorder of Deeds

I started my Courthouse career in September 1992 as a Deputy Recorder.
A year later (September 1993), I took a new position as a Deputy Clerk in the court system where
I spent the next 25 years ending as a Senior Court Clerk. In the fall of 2018, I was elected to the
office of Circuit Clerk and Ex-Officio Recorder of Deeds.
