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, Right of Ways, Maps and other documents regarding the transfer of property.
The Clerk’s Office also records liens filed against property. 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.
Most documents recorded with the County Clerk’s Office are considered Public Information. If you wish to obtain a copy of a recorded document you may do so in person by visiting the Record Room of the County Clerk’s Office, or you may submit a request by mail. There is a fee for document copies, for recording, for certification, and for postage (if applicable) based on the number of pages.
A complete list of fees can be found here. We accept check, money order, cash (if paying in person), and credit cards as payment. Please contact our office to determine the exact cost prior to mailing a payment.
