I can access the plat but it is unreadable.

The action to take depends on the MCR Book and Page.

Book of Plats 1 through 95; (except 023-18 which appears to be missing)

These plats are at the State of Arizona Department of Library, Archives & Public Records.

Helpful hint: You will probably have to physically go there to retrieve a copy. They do NOT have a full size copier, be prepared to make many 8½ x 11 or legal size prints if you need the whole plat.

Book of Plats 75 through current, Book of Surveys and Book of Roads are managed by the Maricopa County Recorder’s Office.

Email the Recorders office at copyarea@risc.maricopa.gov and include the following;

  1. Your first and last name.

  2. Phone number

  3. Book and Page

    1. Book of Plats 75 through 633 Page 35, and

    2. Book of Surveys 1 through 3, and

    3. Book of Roads 13 through 33

You will be sent acknowledgment of your request. The original plat will be obtained, re-scanned and a new digital image will be emailed to you. Depending on the time of day, requests are usually fulfilled in one day if not the same day. Thanks for your patience ahead of time.
