Remote Access Solutions
On October 1, 2008, St. Louis County Recorder of Deeds Office has officially launched our new web-based application that allows for remote access to documents recorded in our office. The St. Louis County Recorder of Deeds has a long-standing history of diligently working to ensure that we provide our customers with overall top-notch service. This implementation is another part of our on going effort to improve customer delivery and provide quality customer service.
