Arapahoe County Recording Manager Casey Sale and Senior Recording Specialist Bob Bookwalter prepare a land survey for recording in the new CountyFusion Recording System. The new system can be seen on the right computer screen.
The Arapahoe County Clerk and Recorder’s Office has switched to a new computer system for recording, indexing and searching public records, such as real estate deeds and liens, land records, marriage and civil union licenses, and military discharges.
The Recording Division has adopted the CountyFusion electronic recording system, where staff will record public documents, and citizens may search for and purchase copies of records. It replaces an eight-year old system that no longer met the county’s needs and provides a more modern and efficient interface. More than 90 counties in the United States use the same system, including six in Colorado.
Arapahoe County leased the system from Kofile Technologies at a cost of $1 per document recorded for five years, so there was no upfront impact to the county’s operating budget. For reference, the Recording Division recorded nearly 147,000 documents in 2017.
“Arapahoe County used our previous recording system for a decade, and we are excited to introduce a more current technology solution,” said Matt Crane, clerk and recorder. “The new system will automate many tasks that used to be done manually, saving time and taxpayer resources. It also creates innovative reports, so we can better track trends and address staffing or training needs.”

If you need to record a document, please visit the Recording Division in-person at the County Administration Building, Monday-Friday, 7 a.m. – 4 p.m., excluding holidays.
In order to increase online access to additional historical records, the clerk and recorder’s office will begin a project this year to scan additional records from the 1880s and preserve the most fragile record books in its archives.
