A document that transfers real estate from one party to another.
Once a document has been filed in this office, the document itself will not be changed-in order to transfer property, you will have to have a new deed prepared. To avoid future problems, we recommend that you have a title company or an attorney do this for you.
Nothfiled in this office. For a nominal fee, you will always be able to receive a copy of your deed.
First of all, a document needs to have original signatures or be certified and properly notarized. The acknowledgement needs to have a State, County, dates, the signatory, signature of notary, seal, and date of expiration. The proper filing fees need to be paid. A deed and affidavit of equitable interest must be accompanied by a Sales Validation Questionnaire, unless states on the face of the deed, it is exempt. Also, needs a Norton COunty legal description, eg. lot, block, addition, or section, township and range. The legal description should come from your deed (not tax statement), or the Appraiser's Office.
If you owned property in joint tenancy, you will need to file a certified copy of the death certificate in the Register of Deeds Office with proper filing fee. This will remove the name of the deceased party from the title of the real estate. A new deed will not be made, but the records will reflect one party is deceased.
The Register of Deeds Office here in Norton County has records that date back to 1874, written in elaborate manuscript.
Not all records are in teh Register of Deeds Office. The Clerk of the Distict Court has court, probate, divorce records, and marriage licenses. Kansas Department of Vital Statistics has birth and death records. Some birth and death information can be found in the Clerk of the District Court before 1911.
The Register of Deeds is an elected Official who makes certain that the documents are properly recording according to the laws of the State of Kansas and maintains those records.
Yes, you could, but the Register of Deeds and staff always recommends the retention of an attorney or a title company. The Register of Deeds is a recording agency, and therefore, cannot make out dees or answer questions which pertain to legal matters.
