Real Estate

The County Recorder is responsible for land and records management, maintaining and recording a wide variety of official documents affecting real estate and numerous other valuable miscellaneous documents. The office collects real estate transfer tax for the Iowa Department of Revenue and collects and reports the County Auditor's fee on transfer of property.


Groundwater Hazard Statement

The Groundwater Hazard Statement is required when a DOV is required and in any other case in which a private sewage system inspection is required (if there are any such cases), regardless of the date on the real estate transfer document.
