The Register of Deeds has the power to take acknowledgments, administer oaths, and certify the same by his or her signature. The Register of Deeds keeps a numerical and alphabetical record in which every instrument (deeds, mortgages, plats, surveys, etc.) filed for record in their office is entered. The Register of Deeds may appoint a deputy for whose acts the Register of Deeds will be responsible. The deputy may not be the county treasurer, sheriff, clerk or surveyor. In Hamilton County a separate register of deeds is not elected pursuant to section 32-518, therefore the county clerk acts as ex officio Register of Deeds.
Costs to record an instrument are $10.00 for the first page and $6.00 for additional pages. Instruments not having at least a 3 x 3 inch space for recording information on the face of the document will require and additional $6.00 as another page will be used. Documents brought in after 4:00pm will be filed the next business day.
