The goal of the register of deeds office is to provide quality public service to all citizens in a professional manner. This office files and records documents that pertain to real estate.

State-Required Functions
The register of deeds office is required by the laws of the State of Kansas to:
  • Record all documents submitted by the public which are qualified to be recorded
  • Maintain an up-to-date and accurate set of indexes which show the correct ownership of land in the entire county

View types of documents recorded by the register of deeds office, and find out how the documents are recorded.

Exception to Open Records Law
All records in the register of deeds office are required by law to be open to the public, except for the Kansas Real Estate Sales Validation Questionnaire. The questionnaire is open to those protesting their taxes and to Kansas-certified general real property appraisers only.
