Alabama - Morgan County Recorder Information

The Recording Division of the Probate Office is responsible for maintaining real property records in Morgan County.

Recording Fees

The local probate office does not post the fees because every deed is different due to the taxes. Recording fees are the same across the board, but the tax is based on the tax assessors market value/price paid for the home.

Contact the office directly at (256) 351-4675 to determine fees and taxes.
