Recording Notification Service

Recording Notification Service

The Recording Notification Service (RNS) allows members of the public to receive an email alert when a document has been recorded at the Douglas County Recorder's Office. This is a free service provided as a courtesy to our residents and property owners. There is no guarantee that using this service will prevent fraud or inform you of all documents recorded that may pertain to your property.

Notification by Name and/or Assessor Parcel Number (APN)

Subscribers may list up to five variations of their name and up to five parcel numbers per registered email address. This service will only notify the subscriber of recording events based on the enrolled name(s) or parcel number(s) following sign-up.

If you receive an alert, a document has been recorded that includes a name or parcel that you are monitoring. The alert will provide you with a link to the recorded document detail. Click the link in the email to view the document.

Be advised, not all names appearing on a document are indexed by the Recorder's Office. Grantors and Grantees are indexed by our office according to NRS 247.150. The APN is a requirement on all conveyance documents, liens, easements and mortgage type documents. However, it is not a requirement on all recordings. We recommend monitoring both your name variations and APN(s).

NRS 7.285 prohibits the Douglas County Recorder's Office from giving legal advice; thus, our staff are unable to explain or provide information regarding the contents of recorded documents. If you suspect you are a victim of document fraud, please contact local law enforcement.
