Regardless of how you choose to get copies of your deed, it is helpful to know what type of “deed” you want. We have two types of documents commonly called deeds. The first transfers ownership of a property. We refer to these as “deeds.” The second shows you paid off a specific loan, and we refer to these as “releases” or “reconveyances.”
Our office does not have a document that shows you own your home “free and clear.”
You can find a lien by searching our Online Record Index. The most reliable way to find a lien is by searching the name of the person that the lien is against. You can also search by parcel number, but it’s not as reliable as searching by name.
If you have any specific questions about these document types, please consult a title company or real estate attorney. Our office can't provide legal advice.
