Why won't the Recorder's Office perform searches?
The Recorder's Office is committed to providing excellent customer service. However, for liability reasons, our office does not provide search services nor give out recording information over the phone. Customers may search the General Index themselves for recorded documents. Our records are available to the public with exception of military discharges during office hours. If you cannot come into the office, you may send a representative or contact a title company for assistance. Check the yellow pages for listings.

To request copies of recorded documents by mail you must include payment of $1 per page for the copy(ies) and have the recording number or the book and page number. If you do not have this information, come in person or send a representative to the Tippecanoe County Recorder's Office or contact a title company to do a search for you and then place the copy order.

Certification is an additional $5.
