Recording & eRecording
The Recording Department is responsible for the filing of Conveyance, Mortgage and Miscellaneous documents deposited in Tangipahoa Parish. At the time the document is presented to the recording clerk, it is given an entry number with the date, hour, and minute of filing and book and page number. The documents are then passed on to the Mortgage/Conveyance department for indexing. The day’s indexing is checked for any errors, then merged into the current year indexes for use by the public. One to two hundred documents are filed each day in Tangipahoa and the recording and indexing process is complete by the following day.
Unlike most other states, original documents sent to the Clerk of the District Court and Ex-Officio Recorder are NOT returned to the sender. Section 2742 of the Louisiana Civil Code provides that documents deposited with the recorder become part of the parish archives. The filing party may obtain certified copies of the original documents with the Clerk’s endorsement at the time of filing from the Recording Department. After filing, the copies may be obtained from the File Room.
The Recording Department also files, free of charge, Oaths of Office of notaries, sheriff’s deputies, deputy clerks of court, and other parish officials; as well as military discharge forms, medical certificates, and ordination papers.
