New homeowners....don't be scammed! The Clerk’s Office wants to make you aware of a scam involving your property records!

The Clerk’s Office wants citizens to be aware of a scam in which new homeowners are sent an official-looking letter from County Records, LLC, offering to get them a copy of their property deed for $89.  The letter looks legitimate because the information about a property sale is public, so the company goes through public records and obtains homeowners’ address, sale price and other information.

If you get such a letter, don't fall for it!  An unofficial copy of a deed can be printed right at home for free through our website, or a certified copy can be purchased at the cost of $1 per page and a $2.00 certificate fee by calling our Official Records Department at (352) 540-6768.
