How do I get a legal description?

Legal descriptions may be located on deeds, plats, or other recorded documents.  The Assessor’s Office is unable to provide legal descriptions or determine what legal description should be used on legal documents. You may need to seek advice from a title company or a real estate attorney.

Recorded documents are available from the Jefferson County Clerk & Recorder. For more information, visit the Clerk and Recorder website or at 303-271-8121.
