Recording

Phone: (225) 389-3985


The Recording Department is responsible for the recordation of all Notarial Acts. This is the point at which the document becomes a public record. All recorded documents are given an identification number referred to as an ORIGINAL AND BUNDLE number as well as a dated and timed recordation stamp. Another type of document recorded and given an identification number is the UCC FINANCING STATEMENT. This document is given a number that is separate from the Original and Bundle.

Certified copies of documents are available upon request. All fees are due upon recordation.

Attachment

 

It has come to our attention someone has been calling residences of East Baton Rouge claiming to be with the Clerk of Court’s office and asking for Social Security Numbers. Please be assured that it is not the Clerk’s office making these phone calls – we do not make such inquiry calls and will never ask for your Social Security Number.
