The Legal Records Department is responsible for legal documents which are filed as public record. At the courthouse, most documents are maintained from 1840 to present. Document indexes are available for most document types back to 1840 with few exceptions. Document images are available online for most instrument filings from January 1986 to current date. All deeds from county inception to present are online. Mortgage images are available online from 1986 to present. Sorry, no Veteran records are allowed for security reasons.
Most online real estate records found in the database include: deeds, name changes, mechanics liens, mortgages, powers of attorney, wills, corporations, tax liens, military discharges, trademarks, assignments, releases, marriages, and delinquent property taxes.
Filing fees and document particulars for the most frequently filed documents are available online.
The Edmonson County Clerk’s Office uses Software Mananagement Incorporated (SMI) to maintain our records management system.
NOTE: All public records (documents and indices thereof) are available for viewing in the office of the Edmonson County Clerk free of charge. The fees charged for this access are intended to be utilized to continue providing this public service.
