TWO OPTIONS FOR ACCESS TO REGISTER OF DEEDS REAL ESTATE DOCUMENTS
1. TAPESTRY - for the occasional professional user. Tapestry is an Internet access program designed for the occasional user working in a real estate-related business. If you do not have a good real estate background, you are best advised to visit the office of your local register of deeds and get assistance to locate your documents. If you do have a good real estate background, you will have no difficulty using Tapestry. Tapestry offers access to other counties in the Midwest. Fees are assessed to pay for support and maintenance of the system. If you are interested in searching the real estate records in the Green Lake Office of the Register of Deeds, see TAPESTRY below.
2. LAREDO - for the daily, local professional user. Laredo is an Internet access program designed for title insurance firms and other real estate-related firms that operate in Wisconsin and need access daily to the land records in the Green Lake County Register of Deeds office. If your real estate-related firm needs only occasional access, or if your computer expertise is limited, please consider using TAPESTRY instead. Fees are assessed to pay for support and maintenance of the system. If you are interested in searching the real estate records in the Green Lake County Office of the Register of Deeds on a daily basis, see LAREDO below.
Errors and Omissions: This is a working index and may contain errors and omissions due to errors in the preparation of the original document or in the indexing. The indexes are double entry verified.
Images: The images are authentic reproductions of the actual document, and the quality is usually good. However, blue or light-colored ink used on original documents will not reproduce well. A few older documents may be illegible since there was no requirement for legibility until 1997.
Wall dates: Documents are recorded in the order presented. The general rule is that the grantor-grantee (or party) index is available the next working day after being recorded. The image is available by noon of the next working day after the date recorded. The tract index is available the next working day after the date recorded. Documents will be verified within two business days. There are occasional exceptions due to equipment failures and high recording volumes. Send an email to the Green Lake Register of Deeds when you must have more specific information about wall dates.
