I recently paid off my mortgage and my bank sent me a release deed. What do I need to do now?
If the release deed has already been recorded you'll see a file stamp with a document number, recording date and other information from the Recorder of Deeds Office. If that's the case, there is nothing you need to do except file the document away in a safe place.

If the release deed has not been recorded, you should submit that document to the Recorder of Deeds Office for recording. This may be done by mail or in person on the sixth floor of the County Building.

If you mail it in, please write the words "Mail To" somewhere on the document followed by the address where the original document should be mailed back to after processing.

Please refer to our fee schedule to determine the applicable recording fees charged by our office in accordance with state regulations.
