Minnesota Property Records

What are Minnesota Property Records?

Minnesota property records are public information. Property owners, lien holders, and other interested parties can request copies of these records from the county assessor or recorder's office.

The Minnesota Data Practices Act provides that most government data is public unless classified by statute. Anyone can request government data, and the government must provide it unless there is a specific reason to withhold the information.

 

Where to Find Minnesota Property Records

Each county in Minnesota has a county recorder and a county assessor. The recorder is responsible for recording all real estate transactions. At the same time, the assessor determines the property's value for tax purposes.

If you are looking for property records, you can start by contacting the recorder's office in the county where the property is located. The recorder will have a history of all sales and transfers of ownership and any mortgages or liens on the property.

InfoTracer, an online public records search service, can also help you locate Minnesota property records.
