Status of Recorded Documents
Welcome to the Macomb County Register of Deeds "Status of Recorded Documents" page that shows the dates documents have been processed by the Register of Deeds office.
Officially recorded documents can be found in the Land Index Unverified (Daily) or the Land Index Verified (History) and are searchable in the Official Registry. Documents received, but not yet officially recorded, may be found in the Electronic Entry Book until they are officially recorded.
Status of Recorded Documents : Current
Electronic Entry Book and Official Registry Use
To perform a document search:
1. Step One - Search the Electronic Entry Book by date, which will give you all documents received by the Register of Deeds that have not been processed and/or rejected documents. You can also search by the name of the first grantor or grantee on the document to find received documents.
2. Step Two - Search the Official Registry. The search default is for recorded documents in "History", which have been "merged". You must click on “Daily” to find recorded documents that have not been "merged" to History. Please check the above "General Index Date" to find the received date, which has been fully indexed and verified..
Note: All documents received by the Register of Deeds can be viewed in the Electronic Entry Book. Once a document is recorded, it is moved from the Electronic Entry Book to the Official Registry. Documents are indexed using the first grantor and first grantee name before other fields are indexed. Searches conducted by the first grantor and grantee may provide official registry results sooner than searches on other fields for documents recorded at the recording counter in the office.
After the "general index date", the Electronic Entry Book contains only rejected documents that were not officially recorded.
