Two ways you can do this in Cook County.

1) You can visit the location in person and file or

2) You can mail the deed for filing.


You can access the information on the process here (click on Frequently asked questions for recording information).

It is suggested that you contact the recorders office to confirm that the filing fee of $26.00 is updated. You will also need to include property information as stated below from the website:

All property related documents must contain a Property Identification Number (PIN), a complete legal description (available from the County Clerk's office or prior documents on that parcel) and a commonly known address for the property. The grantee's name must appear on the face of all deeds and a return mail address must appear on the face of the document.

Also, documents affecting title must have a preparer's name, a Real Estate Tax Declaration form (municipal, county, state where applicable) or exemption forms

Reply to LawNinvest's Post: CAN I GO TO THE MARKHAM COURTHOUSE - OR MUST THIS BE DONE IN DOWNTOWN CHICAGO?
Expert:  Attorney & Mediator replied 9 years ago.
In Cook county you can go to any of the six locations for filing purposes. The court clerk will then take your deed and consolidate it with the original deed information. So yes, according to their website you can go to the Markham Courthouse. If you intend to mail then you would mail it at the Chicago address.
