CoronaVirus UPdate

One Montgomery Plaza and our office remain closed to the public.

Our office continues to work daily and we continue to accept recordings through the US Postal Service, FedEx/UPS, and through our four eRecording partners. We will accept plans for recording via mail in a rolled tube. We are working with the Planning Commission and Board of Assessment to continue to record plans.

Additionally, we have added a drop box in the lobby of One Montgomery Plaza for dropping off recordings and plans. Please make sure you are following the same recording requirements as you would if you mailed documents and that all plans have been pre-screened and pre-approved. Click here for more information on utilizing the drop box.

opies of documents can be obtained from our office utilizing our Public Access System.


Our office has partnered with the Montgomery County Prothonotary to swear in Montgomery County notaries via video conferencing. To sign up for a time slot, notaries need to have an executed bond, power of attorney and their driver’s license. Sign up for your time slot here.  After signing up you will receive an automatically generated confirmation of your time. A day before your online video conference you will receive a Cisco WebEx invitation to join the meeting at your reserved time.

If you do not have a camera on your computer, please download the free Cisco WebEx app on your phone or tablet. Open the app at your scheduled time and enter the meeting ID and passcode.
