Centre County Government: Recorder of Deeds: Recording Activity Information Notification

Centre County Recording Activity Information Notification

With the importance of protecting records against fraud, Centre County and the Office of the Recorder of Deeds have initiated a FREE service to allow concerned citizens to be alerted to Recording Activity.


When a document is recorded into the Official Records of Centre County Pennsylvania with a Name that is being monitored, an email will automatically be sent to the provided email address. Important note: This service applies only to documents recorded after sign up.

This no cost service does not constitute or create a liability on the part of the Centre County Recorder of Deeds or Centre County Government. Also, it is the Recipient's responsibility to ensure that email from the Notification Service is Accepted, and not Blocked as Spam. The information used for the Centre County Recording Information Notification may be subject to public disclosure per Pennsylvania State Right to Know Law.

For additional information on this service, visit our informational page.

Only names which match exactly will create a Notification, so it is recommended that careful attention is paid as to how the Instruments you wish to protect have been Recorded.

To simplify the process, names are matched by ignoring any punctuation, capitalization, and spacing. While that may occasionally cause a notification for a similar name, that is preferred to a missed alert due to differences in layout.

Example: If the following Document was recorded:

DEED
GENERAL LAND SALES CORP PERSON, RORY A
GENERAL STATE BANK PERSON, MARY E
PERSON, RUBY S
And the following names were set to be watched, which ones would match?
Last Name or Business:  First Name:  Would get notified?
PERSONRORYNo: First Name does not match
PERSONRORY AYES
PERSRORY ANo: Last Name does not match
PERSON No: Business Name does not match (a record with no First Name is considered a Business)
GENERAL LAND SALE No: Business Name does not match
GENERAL LAND SALES CORP YES
