Iowa Law and Standards

Iowa Code 331.604 explains that each county in the state of Iowa is to participate in the online county land record information system. The Code also establishes standards for recording, processing, and archiving documents and records electronically. We believe the most effective policies and procedures are best developed through a process in which all views are considered and respected. When policy decisions are made by established governing bodies, it’s our duty to conform to those policies.
