Kane County, Illinois

Kane County is located in northwestern Illinois, in the Chicago metropolitan area. With a population of 515,269 as of 2010, it is the fifth-most populous county in the state. Its county seat is Geneva, although the largest city is Aurora. The county was established in 1836 and named for Elias Kane, the first Secretary of State of Illinois. It has a total area of 524 square miles.

The Kane County Recorder’s Office receives original property instruments/documents and is charged with the responsibility of recording these documents in the county’s permanent archive of land titles and ownership records. Original land instruments recorded by the County Recorder’s office include U.S. surveyor’s field notes, deeds, mortgages, releases, military land grants, military discharges, and judgments of Kane County’s earliest settlers and property owners.  These records are indexed and maintained in the Original Tract books, Grantor/Grantee books or Mortgagor/Mortgagee books and microfilmed for searching purposes.

Recorded documents can be accessed by doing a background check online or by visiting the recorder’s office in person during office hours. To do a public records search online, you will have to visit the Kane County Recorder Website. Documents recorded as early as 1977 are available on the website. The computer system offers abstract information that includes a full document search from a number of different fields. In addition, you can also view the fee schedule applicable when requesting copies of recorded documents.

For records that cannot be accessed through the county website, you will have to visit the recorder’s office in person. You will be required to submit a records request form; this form can be obtained from the recorder’s office or downloaded from the county website. While filling out the form, it is important that you include as much detailed information as possible about the records you are requesting; this will ensure accuracy and reduce the searching time. Alternatively, you can call the county recorder at 630-232-5935. Though you will not be able to obtain copies of recorded documents by phone, it is a sure way to make enquiries regarding public records in the county.
