Auditor's Role

The Auditor is the Overseer of the County Plats. A copy of all documents dealing with the transfer of real estate recorded in the Recorder’s office is given to the Auditor’s office.

Each document is proofed for accuracy and chain of title. The document is then entered into the transfer record.

Plat & transfer records are maintained showing the ownership of all parcels of land for taxation purposes.

The Auditor may cause subdivisions to be platted when necessary.
