Maricopa County Recorder's Office

We are pleased to offer the latest in technology for your information and convenience. Our recording system makes available, either in one of our offices or on the internet, over 146,000,000 images. Data including our first recording on June 5, 1871 can be located on our website. Social security numbers have been redacted on all images available on the website. Images of Plat Maps dating from 1901, and Recorded Ordinances are also available in our office or on the internet. Since August of 1999 we have accepted documents electronically and currently over 80% of all documents are submitted this way. In, January 2011 we partnered with the Maricopa County Library District to place the very first Interactive Recording KIOSK, in Surprise, AZ at the Northwest Library. We continue to remain at the forefront of e-government.

We are proud of the many awards and recognitions we have received and that we are considered by many to be the premier recording office in the country. Since 1988, we have continued to provide the citizens of Maricopa County the finest service possible. To ensure that we stay on the leading edge in our field we continually make changes and we encourage your participation. We welcome your suggestions and comments and look forward to hearing from you.
