The County Clerk is the clerk for the county courts, including probate courts, and the commissioners court. The clerk is also the recorder for the county (Tex. Const. Art. V, Sec. 20). All instruments filed for record are done so in the clerk's office. A specific and vast knowledge of all the foregoing statutes is required to conduct business in every division of the County Clerk's office. A working knowledge and understanding of the many laws and statutes of the State of Texas, as well as local rules, is necessary.

In addition to real estate records, the County Clerk office is responsible for full scale processing of assumed name certificates, DD214's military discharge, brands, bonds, agendas, plats and a vast array of other legal documents. The Vital Statistics Division brings forth another set of duties and obligations in issuing and certifying birth and death records. All marriage applications and licenses are processed in the County Clerk's Office according to the guidelines set out by statute.

  • Real Property Records

    The Texas Legislature recently amended the Property Code to provide a streamlined procedure for addressing discriminatory provisions in real property records. Although state law already declared restrictions and provisions in real property records that prohibit the use, sale or transfer of real property to a person based on race, color, religion, or national origin to be void and unenforceable, Senate Bill 30, which took effect on September 1, 2021, establishes a  process for a property owner, or another person that the owner authorizes, to request a judicial  review of specific property records to  determine whether they contain prohibited discriminatory provisions.

    The bill sets out the contents of the documents required to be submitted to the court as well as a suggested format for the court’s findings and order. Under certain circumstances, the court may issue its determination without conducting a hearing. No filing fees may be charged under the statute.

    To view the language of the bill and the format for filing with the court as well as the format for the court’s findings and order, use the link: 87(R) SB 30 - Enrolled version (texas.gov)
