About This Page

One of two systems counties use to track property ownership in their records; the other is abstract. Torrens records (“certificates of title”) are kept by the county registrar and provide conclusive proof of ownership. Contact the county recorder’s office in the county where the property is located to find out if it is Torrens or abstract (in Minnesota, this is the same as the county recorder).
