Welcome to the Register of Deeds of Stanton County

The Register of Deeds is an elected official and is required by the Laws of the State of Kansas to record all documents that are qualified to be recorded. This office maintains and preserves accurate records for the citizens of Stanton County. We keep a daily record of all the transactions and UCC's recorded and filed in this office.

The Register of Deeds office records many different kinds of documents. Some examples are deeds, mortgages, oil and gas leases, military discharges, power of attorneys, cemetery deeds and many others.

All records in this office are required by law to be open to the public for inspection during regular business hours except information on the Sales Validation Questionnaire and Military Discharge.

All fees collected by the Register of Deeds office are set by state statue. These fees must be paid at the time of recording. At the close of each month all fees collected are deposited into the county general fund.

This office is here to assist you in any way we can. We will do our best to provide the information you request if possible. If we cannot we will suggest other sources of information that may be useful.

All fees are due and payable prior to filing.
