The Register of Deeds Office creates a public record for all land situated in Oakland County. This includes deeds, mortgages, foreclosure records and personal property filings. By using US Land Records or Super Index you can obtain copies of any recorded document(s) which date back to January 1, 1964, with the exception of subdivision plat maps.

Documents recorded with our office are scanned and microfilmed using the most modern methods to ensure safety and replacement at any time. Recorded documents are indexed and returned to the submitter in a prompt manner by U.S. Mail, unless otherwise noted.

Please note: The Register of Deeds office does not handle birth certificates, other vital records or UCC filings for transferring utilities.
