Recorder of Deeds Overview...
Pennsylvania is divided into 67 recorder districts with an elected Recorder of Deeds responsible for each office. Documents related
to the ownership of real estate within the district are recorded at the Recorder of Deeds.
Recorded documents are assigned a sequential identifying number (known as the book and page number) and are then scanned into
the recorder office's computer system. The resulting images are available for viewing and printing from public access terminals at
the recorder office
and at your home or office over the Internet. In addition, all recorder offices microfilm all recorded documents and most continue
to produce record books containing document images on paper. In most cases, original documents are returned to the land
owner. To assist customers in finding relevant documents, recorder offices create a searchable
index that contains the names of all parties to a document and the property address.
