Massac County Recorder Indexing Errors

ATG has been advised that there is a problem with the indexing of documents in the Recorder of Deeds office of Maasac County, Illinois. Apparently, since some time in 2010, documents with quarter-section legal descriptions have been misindexed in the grantor/grantee index due to the fact that the quarter sections have been reversed, i.e., a document in which the legal description locates the property in the “Northeast Quarter of the Southeast Quarter” had been indexed as the “Southeast Quarter of the Northeast Quarter.” The Recorder’s Office has been advised of the error and is working to correct the indices. Until such time as the indices are corrected, any searches conducted on quarter-section property must include a search using the correct legal description and an additional search with the quarter sections in reverse order.
