How do I find the deed to my property?
There is a computerized index of Grantor and Grantee information that is available in the Recorder’s vault for public use. Grantor means seller and Grantee means buyer. In order to locate a copy of your deed, you would search for your name as the Grantee since you are the one that last bought the property. Once you ascertain the year you purchased the property, you will utilize either the computer index (1989 through the present) or the Grantee Book (1821 through 1992) to further look up your deed. Within these indexes, you will find your full name arranged alphabetically, which will refer you to a book and page number/document number.
