The Recorder is responsible for the recordation and safeguarding of any document
that is authorized or required by statute or court order to be recorded and meet
the recording requirements of state statutes and local ordinances.
Our function as the public repository of records such as deeds, judgments, liens,
and notices makes the Recorder's office much like a library where information is
kept permanently for certified copies and research purposes which is used to determine
the history and ownership of a given piece of property.
The Recorder also maintains and issues certified copies of all vital records including
birth, death, and marriage records that occurred in San Bernardino County.
