Recorder's Office

From the Desk of Joyce Oles – Dearborn County Recorder


Senate Enrolled Act 340 (SEA340) made a one-word change to Indiana Code 32-21-2-3(a)[replacing the word "or" with the word "and"].  This change can be read as requiring a deed, mortgage or other real estate instrument (any instrument that requires a signature per Indiana Code) to include both the signer's notarized acknowledgement and a common law proof by a witness. 

Please follow the advice of your underwriter and/or attorney on how to comply with this new legislation.

We are open to the public. Per Dearborn County Government, masks are still required.  

Please make note of the following resources you have available to you:
