Searching for Addresses
There is no index by property address at the Recorder's Office.
So you can't search by the address of a piece of property to find the property deeds, mortgage loans, etc. that are associated with that property.
Instead you have to search the Recorder's Office name index by the owner of the property to find the deed recorded when that person or business bought the property, and to find any mortgage loans, loan delinquencies or liens recorded on the property under that owner's name.
If you don't know who owns a piece of property, you should start at the County Assessor's Office, which has a database you can search by property address to determine who the owner was when the assessor's office did its most recent assessment of the value of the property.
You then can enter that owner's name in the recorder's office name index to locate the deed filed when the person or business bought the property (the Assessor's Office property transfer list also often lists the recorder's office document number for the deed).
You also can check under the owner's name to see if a more recent deed was filed because the person or business subsequently sold the property.
Finally you can work your way backward in the name index to research the history of the property.
The deed for the recent owner will list from whom that owner purchased the property. You then do a new search in the Recorder's Office name index for that previous owner. That will retrive documents related to the property under the previous owner.
Repeat this process of identifying the previous owner and then doing a new search under that previous owner's name to go further back in the history of the property.
