Frequently Asked Questions

Auditor

Q.

How do I add or remove someone from my deed?

A.

To add or remove someone from your deed following a marriage, divorce, death, etc., we recommend contacting an attorney or abstract/title search company to have the proper documentation drawn up and recorded.  The Auditor’s office can no longer prepare a quit claim deed ourselves.

Q.

How do I get an abstract for my property?

A.

Contact an abstract/title search company to have one prepared.

Q.

How do I split or combine parcels of land?

A.

A split or combination of lots or parcels of land must be approved by the necessary planning department.  If you live in the county (outside of any city limit) you should start the process with the county planning department.  If you live inside a city’s boundaries, contact your city’s planning department to sign off first.
