Does the Recorder’s Office Have a Miscellaneous Record?

County recorder’s offices in the United States make official record copies of a variety of documents, most have to do with real and personal property. In some locations other agreements between individuals, powers-of-attorney, or other documents may be recorded in what is often termed a “miscellaneous record.”

Don’t overlook it. There can be a variety of material in this record–including marriage contracts, personal property liens, contracts and more.
