Deeds of Trust
Denver's recorded documents are not online. To obtain copies of deeds of trust, the following information must be supplied:
- Grantor or grantee name
- Date of recording
- Reception number, if recorded on or after 10/1/1984
- Book and page number, if recorded on or before 9/30/1984
Deeds can be requested by submitting a Record Request form.
The Recording Division does not index deed records by property address or parcel number and thus cannot retrieve records in this manner. However, this service is available through both the Real Property Records Search and an automated phone system, 720‑913‑4162, both of which are maintained by the Assessor’s Office.
Marriage records are not online. Marriage records can be researched and obtained in our office and by mail by submitting a Marriage Record Request Form. Email requests are not accepted. Forms are available on the Marriage Licenses Forms page.
Additionally, you may obtain marriage records from the state, through the State Registrar of Vital Statistics, a division of the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment. This state office has available birth, death and divorce records.
Marriage license applications (which are distinct from marriage licenses and certificates) are also kept as records. These completed applications are not public records. They are provided upon request only to the marriage applicants upon proof of identity. Inquire at the City Clerk window.
Military Discharge Records
Military discharges are not public records. They are provided upon request only to the person named in the record upon proof of identity. Inquire at the Records desk.
Special District Maps
Many special district maps may be found online on the Clerk and Recorder website. By law, all Title 32 special districts must have a copy of their maps on file with the county Clerk and Recorder in each county where their boundaries overlap the county boundary. This includes metropolitan districts and several other types of special districts, but does not include all of the different kinds of special districts that are within the Denver boundaries.
Plat Maps/Condominium Maps
All plat maps are recorded and filed, and are obtainable, in the Clerk and Recorder's Office. Many can also be found online on the Public Works website. You can search this source by plat name or by Clerk and Recorder reception number. You may request a reception number by email to email@example.com, or by calling 311 inside Denver and asking to be transferred to Clerk and Recorder Records.
Condominium maps are recorded and filed in the Clerk and Recorder's Office and are not available online.
Official and certified copies of any plat may be obtained in the Clerk and Recorder's Office and fees are listed here. Copies printed anywhere other than at the Clerk and Recorder's Office should never be used for official purposes as they are not certified.
