The San Mateo County Recorder’s Division is responsible for maintaining archives of documents relating to legally recordable transactions of events. Documents are recorded, digitally archived, indexed, and later made public to the county residents. Some of the records maintained by the recorder division include but are not limited to:

Once a document has been recorded, the document becomes part of the public records of the County Recorder. Through the recorder’s division, the public can access the records. These records can be accessed by doing a search online or by visiting the recorder’s division in person.
