Recorder's Association of Nevada

WHY RECORD A DOCUMENT?


The purpose of recording a document is to preserve it in an “archive” that is accessible when questions of precedence or ownership arise. The archive, by providing equal access to all for both preserving and researching documents acts as an unbiased arbitrator for the public good.

An actively updated central repository for a county allows people to both notify and be notified of actions that may affect them and their real property without searching potentially endless databases for hundreds of companies.​
