There is no charge to search records on file in this office. Please be aware, however, that by statute the clerks are not allowed to do real estate searches. Title and abstract companies must do those searches or you must do your own. In office only the images and indexes are on computer from our historical date of 1880 to current. We also have a web search available. You will need to be in the clerk and recorders site, then click on public record search. After agreeing to the terms you will see a dual purpose screen. The left side allows free index search but you cannot see or print images. The right side allows you to register with a password and pay by credit card. The image fee is $0.25 per page and $0.50 convenience fee per document. The time frame for web access is 1987 to current for index and 1994 to current for images. Certified copies are not available from the web and must be requested from the office. Requests can be made at (payment due up front.)

Due to the wide variety and large volume of documents, it is not possible to list them all. The following is a guide to the more common documents.


Documents that convey real estate.

Documents that encumber real estate. In the State of Colorado, the Public Trustee, a third party, is appointed as regulatory official.


Documents which state an individual's military record.

Subdivision Plats

Approved maps showing the legal boundaries of lots, blocks and easements at the time of recording, within a subdivision.
