How long does it take to get documents back?
The Recorder's Office will return original documents, in most cases, to the party which presented them for recording. Usually, it takes about one to two days to return documents. However, document return time is affected by volume of recordings, work loads, holidays, and staffing levels. Again: always, unless prior agreements are made with this office, provide a self-addressed envelope of proper size and with appropriate postage for document return! If you have not received your papers after three weeks, contact the person or firm who recorded them for you.
