Recorded Deed

A recorded deed is a legal document that transfers ownership of property, like a house or land, from one party to another. When a deed is recorded, it means that a copy of the deed is officially filed with the appropriate government office in the jurisdiction where the property is located. 

A recorded deed provides public notice of the transfer of property and serves as the legal record of the transaction. Recorded deeds become part of the public record, and provide a clear chain of ownership for a piece of property. This makes it possible for potential buyers, lenders, or other interested parties to search records to verify ownership, see existing liens, etc. 

Typically, recording a deed takes place shortly after the transfer of ownership, and there is usually a fee to do so. Once recorded, a deed is considered official proof of ownership and can be used in the event an ownership dispute arises.
