Recording the deed is the act of entering it into a book of public records of written instruments that affect the title of real estate.

 

The purpose of recording is to give everyone interested in the title to the property notice of the various interests of all parties.

 

Recordation gives constructive notice to all parties regarding the interests in real estate.

Most lenders require that a deed be recorded.  Unrecorded deeds are, however, legal instruments.

 

A deed does not have to be recording to be valid
Recording announces to the world the transfer of title
Lenders require recordation to insure that the property is not sold twice
