I'm recording a document to transfer property, are there any tips to ensure that the process isn't delayed?
In order to change title, a legal document must be recorded in the Nevada County Recorder's Office. Once the document is recorded, the change will be processed in our office and the change(s) will be made on our records. We urge you to contact legal counsel or a title company to assist you in this matter to assure that the document is properly completed. Title to the property will remain unchanged until the necessary document has been recorded. Contact the Assessor at 530-265-1232 for more information.
