Our Records And How We Can Help You

Records

The Wasatch County Recorder’s Office contains the historical land records from 1862 to the present. In 1914 Duchesne County was created from the eastern half of Wasatch County; those land records are located in the Duchesne County Recorder’s Office.

The land records, either have been computerized, microfilmed or reside in book format. Most of the original books are now stored off site in a vault for safe keeping. The land records are open to the public in the recorder’s office to view, search and make copies.

How We Can Help You

Department personnel can help patrons who come into the office; with certified copies, locating real property on maps, current ownership and other current information such as size, location, and dimensions of property, situs address, etc. They can also assist patrons in getting started with historical searches.  Telephone requests for limited information such as parcel ID numbers, current ownership, acreage, last vesting document on screen, or limited recording information can be honored. Requests for metes and bounds legal descriptions will not be honored over the telephone.

What We Cannot Do For You
