The documents recorded by the Yavapai County Recorder’s Office include real estate transactions, mortgages, deeds of trust, family trusts, personal property related documents, tax liens, mining notices, subdivision plats, and surveys, just to list a few.
Our records are available online back to 1976. We also have online all recorded subdivision plats and recorded surveys.
The Yavapai County Recorder’s Office has recently upgraded our recording software to maintain our position as one of the most technologically advanced county recorder’s offices in the State of Arizona. This upgrade was paid for from a user’s surcharge on recordings, so that no general fund tax dollars were involved.
Yavapai County has two full service Recorder’s Offices to serve the public, one in Prescott and one in Cottonwood. Our recording volume is the fourth highest in the State of Arizona.
In addition to recording documents, the Recorder’s Office, by statute, is in charge of Voter Registration. The Election Department was placed under the supervision of the Recorder’s Office, in 1997, as directed by the Board of Supervisors,
It is the commitment of this office to ensure that we stay on the leading edge in our field, and provide excellent customer service.
We welcome suggestions and comments and look forward to hearing from our customers.
