Public Records

Recording of Instruments


The primary responsibility of deed records is to record and process all property instruments presented to the County Clerk's office. This is to ensure the safekeeping of these documents in case of loss or destruction. Once a record is filed, it is possible for copies to be made for proof of land ownership, liens against property, and other legal necessities.

Public Record Searches


No searches will be done over the telephone. There is a $5 fee per written record for any search we conduct, with the exception of liens. We will not conduct any lien searches. This constitutes a title search. Search public records online.
