LAND RECORDS

 

The Office of the Clerk of Circuit Court is where all documents (deeds, deeds of trust, etc.) involving property transactions in the County are recorded. Recording fees may be paid by cash, check or with a VISA or MASTERCARD credit/debit card. A convenience fee of 4% is applied to credit/debit card transactions.

In order for a document to be recorded, it must be one that is authorized by law to be recorded in the Deed Book and it must meet certain statutory provisions. Recordation fees and taxes vary according to the type of document being recorded. Recording hours are from 8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Monday through Friday. Documents presented after normal recording hours will be recorded the next business day.

All documents presented for recordation must be originals that have been signed and notarized with the notary seal affixed pursuant to the Code of Virginia.

Land records are available in the Office of the Clerk of Circuit Court. Copies may be obtained in office at a cost of 50 cents per page. An additional fee of $2 per document is charged for certified copies.
