Recorder

Welcome to the Douglas County Recorder's Office!

The mission of the Recorder's Office is to record, permanently preserve, and provide convenient access to public records, with superior quality and efficient customer service. The public records located in the Douglas County Recorder's Office include documents related to real property, such as deeds and deeds of trust, homesteads, liens, easements and many others. We also record maps, mining documents and marriage certificates.

All of the services provided by the Recorder's Office are mandated by Nevada Revised Statute (NRS) 247. We hope you find our website to be a good resource for information, forms, access to the public records and link to other offices. Our friendly and knowledgeable staff are available to assist you in person, by phone, or by email.
