How does someone search for documents?
You may conduct a search for documents yourself in person, or request a simple search be conducted by one of the Deputy Register of Deeds using an owner’s name or legal land description of the property.  A simple search performed by a Deputy Register of Deeds will provide the most current recorded document. You will need the legal land description (NOT street address) of the property, The legal land description can be found on the tax bill for the property, or from the city or township where the property is located. For more in depth searches, you will need to contact a local title Company or an independent title searcher. This office DOES NOT PREPARE DOCUMENTS and DOES NOT ANSWER LEGAL QUESTIONS. Please contact an attorney if you need legal assistance.

How someone request a copy of a recorded document?
The person making the request will need the liber & page number which can be found on the recorded document.  If the liber & page number is unknown,  a search must be authorized, as noted above.
