Knox County Recorder's Office Seal
The County Recorder has the indispensable task of keeping the records pertaining to ownership and all encumbrances or liens upon real estate. Without the work of the County Recorder in recording, safekeeping, and organizing all documents, it would be nearly impossible to purchase land and be assured of a clear title or to lend money with land as security.


PropertyCheck is a free service that helps Knox County residents protect themselves from property and mortgage fraud. Residents can customize alerts, allowing for immediate updates when a document is changed.
