Some companies occasionally send mail to property owners asking them to purchase recorded property documents. These solicitations resemble a bill from a government agency requesting a payment of $90.00 or more for a copy of a real estate deed or record. The Clay County Recorder’s Office can provide a copy of the same document for only a few dollars. Contact the Recorder’s Office at 218-299-5031 for assistance or visit our online research site at www.landrecords.net to obtain recoded real estate documents.
