Real Estate Records

Real estate records in Walworth County are indexed in a grantor/grantee index system beginning in 1839. Documents recorded since January of 1966 have been indexed in a computerized grantor/grantee index. In July of 2004, a computerized tract index searchable by legal description was added to aid in locating records. This additional tool will be a valuable asset to Walworth County citizens as the index becomes more populated with data.

Effective February 1, 2016 all conveyance documents except those that are exempt per 77.25(1) and 77.25(10M) will require an Electronic Real Estate Transfer Return (eRETR).
