Document Center

Raleigh County has records of every deed recorded since the formation of our County in 1850.

We are also responsible for keeping the records of all Trust Deeds, Liens and other documents regarding the transfer of property.

These documents are considered Public Information. If you wish to obtain a copy of any recorded document you may do so in person or make a request by mail.  There is a fee for document copies; for recording; for certification and postage (if applicable) based on the number of pages. 

A complete list of fees can be found here.  If you give us a call we can confirm the cost and process.  Records are available for public search in the Record room of the County Clerk’s Office.

The Clerk’s Office also records liens filed against property. Those records are made available to the public and may be obtained by a visit to our office. Please be advised the Clerk and/or Deputy Clerks cannot tell you if your property is clear of all liens.  We are not licensed nor bonded to do a title search on property. We will assist you in looking up records however, a declaration that property is free of liens or indebtedness requires an attorney or title search agency.
