The first Constitution of the State of Michigan was adopted by the United States Congress in 1835 establishing the Register of Deeds as the official recording office for all legal documents and instruments pertaining to the transfer and encumbrance of real property (land) located within each county. The duties and responsibilities of the Register of Deeds Office are established by state law to include recording, indexing and retaining documents that convey or encumber real estate located within the County.
