ATTENTION

There is a company sending letters that resemble a bill for up to $89 offering to get you your property documents, i.e. deeds, mortgages, etc.  They really will send you your property documents. 

However, if you need a copy of any property document that has been recorded at the Ingham County Register of Deeds office it will cost you $1 per page.  Deeds are normally 1 or 2 pages.  So you could spend $1 or $2 by contacting our office, at 517-676-7216, to get a copy of a deed. Or you could spend up to $89 for a copy the company that sent the letter to you will get from us for $1 or $2.

We also have our records available online from 1956 to current, with document images from 5/28/1959 to current.  Anyone can search our records online or here in our office for free.  Any of our employees can show you how to search our records.

We also have a fraud alert system set up that anyone can sign up for that will alert you either by phone call or by email if there has been a document recorded with your name on it after you sign up for the alert.  Please look at the links listed on the Register of Deeds portion of the Ingham County website http://rd.ingham.org/ for other useful information regarding property documents.
