About Public Records Requests

The California Public Records Act (Government Code Section 6250 et. seq.) applies to writings in County files "containing information relating to the conduct of the public's business prepared, owned, used or retained by any state or local agency regardless of physical form or characteristics."  The County will provide those documents to you, unless they are exempt from disclosure under the Public Records Act or other legal reason prevents the documents from being disclosed to the public.

To request records from the Clerk-Recorder office under the California Public Records Act, please complete and submit the request form. Requests may be submitted by mail, fax, or in person.  A response will be sent to you within (10) ten business days of receipt of your request by the Clerk-Recorder office. In some instances, the Clerk-Recorder office may require up to an additional (14) fourteen days to respond as authorized by the Public Records Act.

All payments are due at the time record reproduction is provided.
