Welcome to the Boone County Recorder's Office!


The Recorder of Deeds is aware that some in Boone County are suffering from the impact of storms and flooding. The Recorder of Deeds office is offering a free certified copy of land deeds, if needed to prove ownership to insurance companies or relief agencies, as a result of storm or flood damage. Please contact our office or stop by to request a copy, and mention that it is for storm/flood relief.

As always, you may view and print unofficial copies of your deeds on our website.

A county-wide elected office with a four year term, the Recorder's position is held by Nora Dietzel. Ms. Dietzel took office January 1, 2015.

The Recorder of Deeds is responsible for making record of documents primarily in real estate and the issuance of marriage licenses. In addition, Uniform Commercial Code, Military Discharge Papers, tax liens and miscellaneous documents may be recorded upon request and in compliance with statutes.

Records in this office provide data about real estate transactions in a historical perspective. Deeds, deeds of trust, releases, easements, surveys, plats, restrictions, cemetery deeds, wills, road right of ways, articles of incorporation, patents, affidavits and marriage license information make up an example of the documents.

Boone County’s website allows records to be searched online for Real Estate, Marriage, Uniform Commercial Code, and Tax Liens databases. Images of recorded documents are also available in some instances.
