Hamilton County Register of Deeds
The Register of Deeds has the power to take acknowledgments, administer oaths, and certify the same by his or her signature. The Register of Deeds keeps a numerical and alphabetical record in which every instrument (deeds, mortgages, plats, surveys, etc.) filed for record in their office is entered. The Register of Deeds may appoint a deputy for whose acts the Register of Deeds will be responsible. The deputy may not be the county treasurer, sheriff, clerk or surveyor. In Hamilton County a separate register of deeds is not elected pursuant to section 32-518, therefore the county clerk acts as ex officio Register of Deeds.
Costs to record an instrument are $10.00 for the first page and $6.00 for additional pages. Instruments not having at least a 3 x 3 inch space for recording information on the face of the document will require and additional $6.00 as another page will be used.
Forms of Payment: Cash or Check Only
