Tennessee Recorders Information

Register of Deeds

You are NOT on the Tennessee official website, you are on Deeds.com, a private website that is not affiliated with any government agency.

Real property records are maintained by the recorder in the county where the property is located. If a piece of land is situated in two or more counties, it may be recorded in either. If there are several tracts of land lying in different counties, the document shall be registered in each county where any of the tracts lie.

Recording a deed of conveyance in Tennessee is considered to provide constructive notice of the transfer.

Deeds must contain a recital designating the deed, will, court decree, or other source from which the grantor received the equitable interest. If the source of equitable interest is a deed or other previously recorded instrument, the new document shall give the type of instrument, office, book, and page number. If no such instrument has been recorded, this shall be stated on the deed.
