Official Recording


Need to record a document in Colorado? 

Our firm can assist you with recording documents electronically in every County in Colorado.  Currently Wyoming does not support electronic document recording.

How long until I receive my recorded document back from the County? 

Each County has its own processing timeframe for electronically recording documents, but the average turn-around time is within 2 hours of filing, and in most Counties it is often within under 30 minutes of filing.  On the other hand, the average time to receive recorded documents back from a County, if the document is submitted manually at a County Recorder or Assessor’s office, is 7 to 10 business days.


What types of documents can be electronically recorded?

Any document that can be manually recorded may also be electronically recorded.

What types of documents are usually recorded and why?

There are many types of documents that one might wish to record, for a variety of reasons.  Many recording transactions pertain to buying and selling property, and are called Deeds.  Colorado recognizes 4 main types of deeds:  General Warranty Deed, Special Warranty Deed, Bargain and Sale Deed, and Quit Claim Deed.  Other papers that one might record are death certificates and court issued probate documents, also for use in the sale & purchase of property.  Any time a property is defined or redefined on a Plat (a map, drawn to scale, showing the divisions of a piece of land), that Plat must be recorded in the appropriate County. These are a few of the most common types of items that get recorded.
