What closing information goes into the public record?

Public Records

Any time a piece of real estate is sold, certain records derived as a result of the real estate closing are entered into the public record. Transfer of title and deed is recorded at the county clerk's office and is available for viewing by any member of the public who should so choose to access it. Included in real estate closing costs is a fee called a "recording fee." This is the fee charged by the closing company to record the real estate transfer with the county clerk or registrar. This fee is charged to the closing company by the registrar.
