Deeds Index Search

How It Works


Simply register as a user on the Online Search website.

On-line fee rates for printing copies of documents from your personal printer.

Self-Service Search & Copies


No search fees apply when you do it yourself! You only have to pay for copies that are downloaded or printed. You can search current records, browse index data, and make copies on-line back to December, 1985. For earlier records you can come in to our physical office or contact us to request digital copies. Again, if you do the searching yourself there is no charge. If our staff searches the fee is $0.50 per year for each search ($5 minimum) plus the cost of copies.

For assistance refer to the Help Section. You may also refer to the Instructions for Web Access to Land Records (PDF) for additional help.

Fraud Prevention & Monitoring


Fraud Guard is a tool that helps protect you or your business from becoming the victim of property fraud. It also can simply alert you to any property, mortgage or real estate activity in Clinton County associated with a name(s) that you select. Once you register for the free service, you will receive an email notice whenever the name you are monitoring is on a document being recorded in this county. A few reasons some people are using fraud guard:
  1. They are having financial issues (e.g., tax or foreclosure) related to property and want to be aware of any liens filed.
  2. They are going through divorce and want to keep track of any property changes.
  3. They have an elderly parent(s) and want to be aware of any major property changes.
  4. They are starting a construction project and want to know if any construction liens are filed in the process.
To activate this service you first must register on the Register of Deeds online search system and log in.
