Recorded documents that affect title to real property are regularly transferred to the department from the Jefferson County Clerk and Recorder's Office. Once received, the department verifies that the deed matches the county public records before changes are made.

The assessor's office can only use documents recorded with the Jefferson County Clerk and Recorder's Office to change the assessor ownership records.

Jefferson County does not provide any deed forms. You can purchase a blank deed or document at a stationary store or office supply store. Other websites may also sell legal forms.

The assessor's office cannot give advice about which deed type should be used for any given situation.
