About the Office
The Bucks County Recorder of Deeds office houses records from 1684 to the present. The office is no longer preparing bound books, but all official records are retained in microfilm and microfiche modes. For your protection and accurate permanent record, all documents are filmed and the original documents are retained until the indices and records are verified. For this reason, it generally takes about three weeks for the original papers to be returned. The Recorder of Deeds Office is the only one in the Courthouse to return original papers. The papers are sent back to the person who recorded them, in most cases a Title Company or Attorney. If you have not received your papers after two months, contact the person or firm who recorded them for you. We must have a self-addressed envelope if they are to be returned by mail.

The Recorder of Deeds Office handles as many as 25 different kinds of documents in addition to deeds and mortgages. Some of them include mausoleum permits, sewer permits, cattle brands and filings under the UCC Code. For a complete list, ask for the Fee Schedule.

The Recorder of Deeds Office records Military Discharge records. When the papers are recorded, you are provided with three certified copies, in the event you need them for various veterans benefits. There is no fee for filing your Military Discharge papers since the fee is paid by the County. No one but the veteran, his family,. or a veteran organization official is permitted to look at these records.
