Please read the instructions before proceeding:

You can search the Official Records Index anytime from the comfort of your home or mobile device!  Please see below for some helpful instructions on our Official Records Index website:


There are several ways to search the index.  The most common is "By Name".  When searching by name, be sure to put the "last name" space (no comma) then "first name".  You can also search by Document Number or Book & Page.  If you are looking for a record after 2013, you may verify you have the right property by comparing the Assessor's Parcel Number (APN) listed under the "Additional Information" section.


Currently our system will only allow you to view the index.  If you would like to purchase a copy of a document, please see the instructions below:
