Real and Personal Property / Official Public Records
The County Clerk's oversight responsibilities as county recorder are four fold:
- Process, file, and record all real and personal property records, assumed names (D.B.A.), liens, abstracts, bonds, livestock marks and brands, county and school district budgets, subdivision plats, and hundreds of other document types in a safe, secure, archival manner
- Provide public access to and an index of all public records
- Issue certified and non-certified copy of any public records
- Assess, collect, and report fees and costs
The filing of most non-judicial documents are governed by Sections 191 through 195 of the Texas Local Government Code.
