If you have a document number and need a copy mailed, faxed, or emailed, the Clay County Recorder's Office will be happy to help you when payment is arranged.


Recording is our 1st priority. If a request is mailed, faxed or emailed, we will do limited research at no charge as we have time available. We charge $1 per page for copies and $5 minimum for faxes. Requests are processed in the order received.

If you need research done in the very near future, contact an abstractor or researcher.
