You cannot alter any documents once they are recorded. In order to replace the current deed, you will need to have a new deed prepared and recorded in our office. This is usually referred to as a Deed of Correction. It is generally best to have someone with some degree of expertise in this field, such as an attorney, to draft the new deed .
Use our public database to search property records or hire a professional title searcher. The Recorder of Deeds is not permitted/bonded to conduct title searches on a property.
The Recorder of Deeds can provide the survey information located on the deed and subdivision plans. However, we are unable to determine property lines or assist in the process. We do not have individual plot plans. A survey needs to be conducted on the property by a licensed surveyor if you want to determine your property’s boundaries.
Our records do not reflect dwellings, only the land the dwelling is located on. Contact the original builders, your real estate agent, an expert in property searching, or your municipality.
