The Cedar County Assessor's Offce and the Cedar County Recorder's Office is asking residents to be cautious if they receive a mailing asking them if they want a copy of their deed and property assessment. County offices across the state have received inquiries from concerned citizens regarding letters received stating 'there was deed activity recorded in public record' and that the property owner should obtain a 'current property grant deed and assessment.' The company is charging $83.00 for the service. The mailing is designated to cause a property owner to believe that there has been a recently recorded document, which is often not accurate. Anyone receiving this notice should not be alarmed or feel that it is necessary to respond to it. A copy of a deed can be obtained from the Cedar County Recorder's Office for a few dollars in copy fees; if you have any questions about or would like to inquire about obtaining a copy of your deed, please contact the Cedar County Recorder's Office at (563)886-2230.
