Coffey County Register of Deeds

Register of Deeds

MISSION STATEMENT:
To provide quality public service to all citizens and preserve all real estate and related documents with professionalism.

FUNCTION OF OFFICE:
The Register of Deeds office files and records documents that pertain to real estate. These documents include, but are not limited to, deeds, affidavits, mortgages, assignments, releases, oil and gas leases, agreements, easements, powers of attorney, plats, surveys, real estate related death certificates and military discharges.

The Register of Deeds also files financing statements or UCC's (Uniform Commercial Code). These would include federal and certain state tax liens, mechanics liens for automobile repair, and liens on fixtures attached to the land such as irrigation equipment.

The Register of Deeds office became the custodian of the rural school records from the disbanded office of County Superintendent. We have student records from the early 1900's and some teacher records.

OPEN RECORDS:
All records in this office are open to the public with the exception of the Kansas Real Estate Sales Validation Questionnaire (SVQ) and military discharges, closed by State Statue.
