General FAQs

Question 1 - I just bought a new house and I'm being solicited. Can you stop solitors from from giving out my name and address?

Most home purchases involve recording deeds with this office. These deeds become public records. Anyone may view the information on these deeds. Some companies are in business to take information from certain kinds of documents and regularly come into this office for that purpose. Deeds often have the owner's address as the mailing address, and anything on the document is public information that we can't legally restrict. Most deeds do not have phone numbers, and we do not maintain files of addresses and phone numbers, so phone solicitors are likely getting your phone number from another source not known to us.

Question 2 - Do you supply blank forms for recording documents?

No. Most forms are available at stationery or office supply stores.

Question 3 - Will you ever be able to transact business over the Internet?

We are investigating options for allowing selected capabilities over the Internet. If you have any recommendations, you may email the  recorderclerk@edcgov.us your comments.
