Recorded Documents

Land Records

The Inyo County Recorder has maintained copies of all recorded land transaction since the county was formed in 1866. The County Recorder is responsible to preserve this information permanently. Recording land ownership documents is not a legal requirement. However, recording your documents with the Country Recorder creates a permanent record of your homeownership even if your original documents are lost or stolen.
