Alabama Recorder Information
Real property records are maintained by the recorder in the county where the property is located.

The state of Alabama requires by statute (section 35-4-113) that all real estate deeds have a statement on them that identifies the preparer of the document and the address of that preparer.

The statute is as follows:

Section 35-4-113
An instrument will be in compliance with this division if it contains a statement in the following form: "This instrument was prepared by (Name) ____ Address) ____."

In order to be compliant with Alabama statutory requirements the preparer's information is to be included on the deed. Deed's that do not include this information may still be valid; however, there will be record-ability issues and the possibility of being ruled as invalid should a court matter arise.
