    Jen Chapman, Storey County Recorder  


The primary goal of the Storey County Recorder’s Office is to maintain accurate, reliable stewardship of the County's public records through strict compliance with all applicable laws and the dedication of professional, well-trained staff. We are committed to protecting and preserving the integrity of the County’s historical records while providing increased access to records and staying technologically viable as we progress to the future.



The County Recorder is charged with recording documents and filing of maps. This office is also responsible for maintaining cross reference indexes to these records. The office provides retrieval of records for public viewing and produces copies and certifications of records. Real Property Transfer Tax is collected on transfers of real property. 

Some examples of recorded documents are deeds, deeds of trust, notices of completion, declaration of homesteads, and federal tax liens. Other examples are land maps, mining papers, and marriage certificates. All recorded documents are microfilmed for permanent retention. At this time our computer indexes begin around 1983 and are available for searching online.

Recorded documents and maps are Public Records and are available for public viewing at our office. At this time public viewing of the actual document is available online beginning July 1, 1996.

*PLEASE NOTE*

Pursuant to NRS 7.285, the Recorder and Office Personnel are forbidden to practice law, which includes advising what forms are needed, how to fill them out, or giving any other legal advice. Documents to be recorded must be ready to record at the time of submission; the Recorder's Office cannot complete forms!
