Search Recorded Documents
your convenience, the Recording Department has developed an application
to search the grantor/grantee index. We strongly encourage you to
read through the "Help" information below before proceeding
to the search feature. If you locate a record of interest and would
like a copy, please note the reception number or book and page and
contact the Recording Department for further instructions. Please
note that military records are confidential and will NOT display
in the search results. For additional information, please refer
to the section on Release of Military Records
or contact the Recording Department, which is available to assist
you with any questions or concerns. You may reach the Recording
Department at (719) 520-6200 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
When searching by name, the most basic principle to note
is the more specific the entries, the more refined the search
results will be. This is a required entry for this type of search.
The standard for entering names is "Lastname" "Firstname"
"MI" (eg: Doe John J), however, you may enter a partial
name of at least two characters to broaden your search. Please
note that commas are NOT used to separate names. Only the first
100 records will be retrieved regardless of whether there were
additional matches. Consider adding a date range to help narrow
adding a date range to your search, be aware that the index
is available from 1984 to present. If you are searching for
a document prior to 1984, you will need to contact the Recording
Department for additional assistance. Please note that the standard
date format is MM/DD/YYYY, however, the query will accept any
valid date format (eg: 03 or Mar for March and 99 or 1999).
Reception Numbers: For years 1994 to 1999, reception numbers
should be eight digits in length and start with the last two
digits of the year (eg: 99000001). For years 2000 and after,
reception numbers should be nine digits in length and start
with a "2" followed by the last two digits of the
year (eg: 202000001). For years prior to 1994, reception numbers
vary in length. If you have any questions, please contact
the Recording Department for additional assistance.
Book and Page Numbers:
The query can accept book and page information(if they exist)
to conduct a search.
searching by instrument, you can click "A Partial List"
which links to the page listing some common document types (instruments).
You may copy the item you need and go back to the search page
and paste it into the text box of the instrument. You can also
enter at least two characters to broaden your search. If you
enter "wa" to search, for example, you will get a
list of "Warranty Deed" records. The values of
reception numbers are sorted in descending order, from highest
value to lowest value.
