Register of Deeds

Statement of Purpose

The original and current purpose of the Register of Deeds office is to preserve and maintain the land records of Finney County.

These records belong to the people of Finney County. We pledge to maintain them in good working order for all to use. Our goal is to provide friendly, efficient service.

Services Provided

The Register of Deeds office files and records documents pertaining to real estate, as per state statutes. We also file state and federal tax liens, mechanic liens on vehicles, other various liens, military discharges, and personal property liens referred to as Uniform Commercial Code (UCC) filings. Most documents require a filing fee, set by state statute.

Our staff is happy to assist in searching our records, however; we are not researchers. We are a filing agency. Copies are available for a small fee.
