Official Records

Official Records are online from January 1, 1983 through the Last Verified date.

The Clerk’s office has begun a project to digitize all official records back to the establishment of Seminole County in 1913, and this project is scheduled to be completed by the end of 2020.

Official Records consist of documents that are recorded with the County Recorder, which in most Florida Counties is the Clerk of the Circuit Court and Comptroller. Some of the various types of documents contained within the Official Records are: Deeds, Mortgages, Notices of Commencement, Liens, Declarations of Condominium, Declarations of Domiciles, Final Judgments, Military Discharges, Death Certificates, Probate documents, Satisfactions of Mortgage, Court Papers, Plats, Maps, etc., in the Official Records of Seminole County.

Documents recorded in the Official Records must meet statutory requirements, as set forth in the Florida Statutes. Recording fees​ and payment of any required documentary stamp taxes due are required when recording your document(s) in the Official Records. You may come in person or mail your document with the recording fees and documentary stamp taxes along with a self-addressed stamped envelope, for the return of your document.
