The Renville County Recorder’s department offers Abstracting services for all property located in Renville County. An abstract is a historical summary of all of the recorded documents that affect the title to the property. These services include preparing new abstracts of title, continuing abstracts of title, preparing Owner and Encumbrance reports, conducting name searches for Court Judgments, State and Federal Tax Liens, and Federal Judgments. The fee for abstracting and name searches varies depending on the number of entries an abstract contains and on the number of names searched. The Recorder’s department will prepare abstracting fee estimates for new abstract and continuations of abstracts.
