NORRISTOWN – Tropical Storm Ida swept through Montgomery County one year ago, leaving destruction and devastation in its wake. Montgomery County homeowners continue to pick up the pieces and deal with the effects from the storm. As we approach the one year anniversary of this storm, Jeanne Sorg, Montgomery County Recorder of Deeds is reminding property owners in the County that obtaining a copy of their deed is easy and inexpensive.

The Recorder of Deeds office does not retain original documents – originals documents are generally given to the grantee at settlement, and deeds usually begin with “This Indenture…”. Homeowners whose original deed was lost or damaged in the storm and need a certified copy, copies can be obtained from the Recorder of Deeds office free of charge. Homeowners can call the Recorder of Deeds office Monday through Friday 8:30am until 4:15pm at 610-278-3289.

“Recovery from Tropical Storm Ida has been a long process for many homeowners,” said Sorg. “My office continues to be a resource by providing certified copies of these important documents, at no cost, to those who have been affected by storm damage.” 

The Montgomery County Recorder of Deeds office is open to the public Monday through Friday 8:30am until 4:00pm. To access the Recorder of Deeds Public Access System online visit, or call the office at 610-278-3289.
