The Wayne County Register of Deeds Office is located in Downtown Detroit, between Brush and Beaubien, as of June 2015. The address is 400 Monroe St. 7th Floor, Detroit, MI, 48226.
The Register of Deeds Office is the place where people record documents relating to ownership of property.
Different types of deeds as well as mortgages, liens, releases and land contracts are recorded at the Register of Deeds Office. After a document is recorded, it becomes a public record, which can be viewed by any person. If a deed is not recorded, the property owner will have a difficult time attesting their rights against persons who may try to claim ownership of the property.
