: Please be aware that there is a scam where someone calls you with the County Clerk's phone number on the caller I.D. stating that you need to pay a fine or something else by purchasing a gift card, cutting it in half and then sending it to the County Clerk's Office along with the receipt and no return address.   Don't fall for this.  We do not call people for payments of fines.  The County Clerk will never ask you for financial information over the telephone nor to send us a gift card and receipt.  Ever.   Thank you.



: Please be aware that there are some companies targeting families that are unaware of how to get your property or deed record. These companies are offering to get your property deed at an elevated cost. For example, they might advertise a cost to get your deed record for $65.00. That deed might be 4 pages and the actual cost would be $4.00 or $9.00 for a certified copy. Any questions for pricing can be asked by calling our number listed on this web site. Thank you.

*ALERT: Please be aware that there are "companies" out there that are sending people letters on company letterhead claiming that they have monies for you to claim by contacting them. These letters state they are contacting you on behalf of the Hood County Clerk. The County Clerk's Office does not hire any third party businesses as claim recovery agents to hold money in escrow to be claimed at a later date.

Office History

The office of County Clerk has been in existence in Texas since 1836, superseding the Escribano (secretary) of Spanish-Mexican rule.


Our mission is to provide quality service with well-trained, helpful, and pleasant employees, current technology, and up-to-date record availability while preserving Hood County's history. I believe we are and will continue to move the Hood County clerk's office forward to completing our mission.
