The Recorder's office is responsible for maintaining an archive of permanent records concerning business in Union County. Although any document may be permanently recorded in this office, most involve real estate, mortgages and liens.
On-line access to documents recorded on or after August 2000 is available via the Doxpop Recorded Documents service. This is a fee-based service provided in addition to the free public access already provided at the Recorder's office.
The Union County Recorder's office also offers an on-line Property Watch Service provided at no cost to users.
Although all documents are available for public inspection at no cost, copies cost $1 per page. This fee, along with the recording fees noted below support the operation of the Recorder's office and reduce the use of property tax for that purpose.
