Document Search

Welcome to our County Clerk Document Search Application

Launch Document Search Application

This County Clerk application allows customers to search and view digital images of more than 1,300,000 filed land and legal documents.

Images may be viewed on-line free-of-charge. To download or print documents without a watermark, there is a $0.50/page charge. Certified copies are available through the Record Room at 22 Market St.

As you use the system, an On-line Help section is available to assist you in finding the information and documents you need. If you encounter any technical issues, please contact Internet Support. 

Using Credit Cards and Existing "Searcher" Accounts

Credit Cards may be used to pay for the charges to download/print the digital documents. Additionally, businesses and the public that print documents regularly, may create an account, and use these funds as needed to pay for the documents. Those with an existing account for the 2nd Floor County Clerk Document Search area can use that same account to pay for document images on the Website.
