Recorder

The Grundy County Recorder is elected by the citizens of Grundy County for a four-year term, as set forth in the Constitution of the State of Illinois.

The Recorder’s Office is established by Illinois State statute as the legal repository for land records in Grundy County. In essence, we are a government library for documents concerning the ownership of property. When a document is recorded, our office assigns it a unique Document Recording Number, and then enters the document into a county-wide database. Copies of the actual document are stored on digital media. The original is returned to the owner. The office stores copies of recorded documents dating back to Grundy County’s inception in 1841. We can provide copies of all documents. Fees for these services are set by County Ordinances and State statue.

The Grundy County Recorder’s Office (Room 11) is located on the main floor, in the Courthouse, in historic downtown Morris, Illinois, on the corner of Washington, Franklin and Liberty Streets.
