The Pope County Recorder’s office is the legal custodian for all land records affecting real estate property for the county, in compliance with Minnesota statutes. The Recorder/Registrar of Titles is responsible for the review, recording and archival preservation of hundreds of types of legal documents to protect the rights and interests of individuals and institutions. Examples of common documents include Deeds, Contracts, Mortgages, Satisfactions and many other documents that pertain to real estate property.
Pope County does not offer legal advice or assistance in preparing documents. Questions should be directed to a legal representative or a practicing abstractor to assist in land transfers.
Property in Pope County is classified as two types of title, Abstract or Torrens. Land records date from 1870’s to the present.

Tract Index Available On-line
We provide images of all Tract Indexes on-line free-of-charge. These indexes can be found at the following website:
Our intent in offering access to these indexes free-of-charge is to aid real estate abstractors and all those who wish to access our archived real estate documents!
Our records are retrievable with a subscription to the Laredo product offered by Fidlar Technologies Inc. or on a pay-as-you-go product they offer called Tapestry. All of our records are imaged for these products, however; back-indexing has only been completed back to circa 1977 for Deeds and 1981 for all other documents. To retrieve those non-indexed documents is by document number and in some cases, by book/page number. This website will allow you to find that document number or book/page number!
By entering your search criteria – plat name, subdivision name, lot, block, or section-township- range- you will bring up ALL the tract book pages for that particular parcel since its creation! Perusing these pages, will provide you with the document number or the book/page of the document you are looking for. Entering that number into either Laredo or Tapestry, will allow you to retrieve the document image!
Please feel free to contact our office at 320.634.7840 with any questions concerning your real estate recordings.
