Register and Recorder
As of March 18, 2020, the Register & Recorder's office is requiring that any probating of estates will be done by appointment only. This will help eliminate extra people in our office at any one given time. Anyone wanting to record with our office will need to do so by e-recording (Simplifile, CSC or EPN), mail or dropping off recordings at the security entrance in the Courthouse Annex lobby. Until further notice, public searching of land records will need to be done remotely thru Landex.com. Any estate copies that may be needed, please contact our office and we will be willing to email those to you.
Any questions feel free to contact our office at (717) 261-3872. We appreciate your cooperation during this uncertain time. Wishing you and your family good health!
