Cook County Recorder of Deeds
The Office of the Cook County Recorder of Deeds (CCRD) accurately records, stores and maintains land records and other official documents in perpetuity for public and private use, facilitating home ownership and mortgage lending. The Recorder's staff works to provide access to this information in an accurate, efficient and courteous manner, both in our physical offices and online.
The Cook County Recorder's Office also maintains a Property Fraud Unit to help homeowners investigate fraudulent filings against their property and coordinate law enforcement efforts on behalf of victims. We also safeguard vital military discharge records and operate a Veterans Service Office to provide veterans and their families with dignified and attentive service.
