Welcome to the Kansas Register of Deeds Association home page. In Kansas, almost all of the 105 counties elect a Register of Deeds every four years. The Register of Deeds offices records, maintains and preserves the land records of the county. Deeds, mortgages, easements, oil and gas leases, and plats are documents typically filed in the Register of Deeds office. The filing fees are set by state statute K.S.A. 28-115 and K.S.A. 28-115a and required indexes are set by state statute K.S.A. 19-1201 thru 19-1219. Recording methods vary throughout the state. Some counties make only "paper" copies as the permanent record, other counties microfilm, and some "image". Often, a combination of these methods is utilized. Some counties have computer-generated databases and others keep hand or typewritten indexes. All rely on extensive cross- indexing methods so documents are easy to find.
