Additional Information
In most legal proceedings, the only legally acceptable evidence of title is that which is found in the public record as maintained in the office of the register of deeds. The individual's private interest in land is secure only if the public record is complete, properly managed, and accessible when needed.

It must be recognized, however, that the public record cannot help the property owner who fails to place the necessary papers in the record at the proper time. Documents must be recorded, filed, and indexed before they can serve their intended role.
