All requests must be made in writing by completing an Open Records Request
The request MUST include specific identifiable information that does not require a “title search”. This information may include but is not limited to, a book and page reference, an instrument number, or detailed information relating to the desired document, such as a borrower’s name and address accompanied by the lender’s name, address, and loan amount. Once a request is received, we will contact you with the total fees involved in obtaining the document requested. All fees must be received before the request is completed.
The same rules apply to historic records as to current records. All requests must be made in writing. The request MUST include specific identifiable information that does not require a “title search”.
"What if I don't know the book and page, or am unsure of the validity of the information I currently have?"
Unfortunately, the Clerk’s staff is unable to perform any type of search. Multiple pieces of identifying information are required for clerk assistance.
In addition, most historic records are not as easily obtained as some of the more current records due to the lack of the inquirer’s known identifying information. However, we often consult a member of the Georgetown/Scott County Historic Society to assist us.
"Are your records available online?"
"How can I find out who owns a piece of property?"
"Where do I pay my tax bill?"
How do I know if I have any liens against my property?
The Scott County Clerk’s Office is open for public inspection 8:30am – 4:30pm, Monday through Friday, with the exception of holidays. As deputy clerks, the staff is prohibited from performing any type of “title searching”. That means that we cannot look up records and definitively answer any questions. The Recordings Department staff is available to assist you in your search, but ultimately, your own conclusion must be drawn. Our staff has a list of reputable attorneys, paralegals and abstractors that you can commission to perform an insured title search.
