The Recorder’s Office is committed to seeing that land records for the 1,152 square miles containing 737,280 acres within our County, be handled with all the attention to detail it has had in the past and to move forward with new available technology to provide the best customer service we can to our public.
The LaSalle County Recorder’s Office is where land records are filed. These records are available for public inspection by State Statute. The office provides the necessary equipment to search for and print copies of documents. While it is free to examine documents on file in the office, if you choose to make a copy to take with you a fee will be charged. These fees are set either by State Statute or by County Board Resolution.
Documents may be recorded provide they meet the requirements of State Statutes for a fee that is set by statute or County Board Resolution. These fees must be paid in advance of recording the document. A fee schedule is available from our internet site or at the Recorders Office. After recording your document we will need to retain it long enough to enter the information into our computer system and to microfilm it for archive purposes. We will then mail it to the address indicated on the document.
Please remember that we are clerks and not attorneys and cannot answer legal questions. If you have questions of legality, please consult your attorney.
Documents may be searched by document number, name or legal description. The staff will help you should you need assistance.
We have several forms available at no charge in the office or you may download them for free from our internet site.
