Definition - What does Recorder mean?

A recorder is a person that is authorized by the government and who usually works in a civil, municipal or district office, to record information that relates to the judgments of the court and any other legally validated information, such as a property transfer. The person is employed for the purpose of keeping track of everything that is said and done in any particular vicinity.

Justipedia explains Recorder

After a court judgment is made, a written record of the words that the judge used is prepared to be filed in an office for the sole purpose of ensuring that the court record is kept in a way it can be referenced in the future. The information recorded by the recorder represents the final word in any matter, i.e. if a property is recorded as owned by a certain person, then it cannot be claimed to be owned by another.
