- How do I use the Simple Search to find my documents?
Select Official Records Search, and simply enter your details as you would in a regular Internet search.
For example, if your name is John Doe and you are looking for documents recorded in your name in 2014,
simply type JOHN DOE 2014 and press enter. A list of matching documents will be presented to you.
Note: with Simple Search, it is not necessary to use punctuation (type DOE JOHN instead of DOE, JOHN) to see your documents.
- How do I access Advanced Search Features?
You may access Advanced Search Features by clicking on the button labeled Advanced on the main Simple Search Screen
or by clicking the button labeled Advanced at the top of the Search Results Screen.
- I am in the Advanced Search screen, how do I use this to find my documents?
Using the Official Records Advanced Search enter your details into their corresponding fields.
For example, if your name is Jane Doe and you are looking for documents recorded in your name in 2014,
type DOE, JANE into the Grantor/Grantee names field and type in a date range into the document date fields.
Once you have filled out your search selection, press Enter or click the Search button to retrieve your documents.
Note: Punctuation is optional; you can also type DOE JANE and see the same results.
- Are there any liens filed against me?
If you are using Official Records Simple Search mode, simply enter your name and lien and press Enter.
For example, type JOHN DOE LIEN (or JOHN DOE RELEASE) and press Enter. This will list any lien (or Release) documents filed in your name.
In Advanced Search, enter your name in the Grantor/Grantee names field and press Enter.
When you find your documents with your name, check the document type to determine if there are any liens.
Then look for a matching lien release to see if the lien has been released. If there is no lien release, the lien is still in effect.
- Has my grant deed, assignment, reconveyance or other recordable document been recorded yet?
If you are using Official Records Simple Search mode, simply type your name and press Enter. This will list any documents recorded in your name.
If you are using Official Records Advanced Search mode, enter your name in the Grantor/Grantee names field and press Enter.
If your document is not on the list, it has not yet been recorded.
- I've entered my address, but am not seeing any documents, why is this?
Address information is not stored in the Recorder's Official documents database. Only the Recorder's index information is searchable on this page.
You can see the type of information available for searching (Names, Dates, Document Type...) by clicking on the Advanced Search button.
- Why has my recorded document not been returned to me yet?
Locate your document on the index and note the recording date.
All documents recorded on or before April 17, 2017 have been mailed as of today.
Later documents are still being processed.
