What happens to a deed after it is signed and notarized?

A signed deed should be recorded or filed in the appropriate land records office, usually in the county in which the property is located. The office, which has a different name in different states, is typically called the County Recorder's Office, the Land Registry Office, or the Registrar or Register of Deeds. To record the deed, a person must deliver the signed, original deed to the land records office, and the clerk will stamp the deed with the date and officially record the transaction. The county will charge a small fee to record the deed. Recording the deed gives public notice of the ownership change and the interests in the property.
