Records Search

Magnifying Glass

As of Monday, 11/5/2018, under a directive issued by the County Executive's Office, the Santa Clara County Clerk-Recorder's Office will no longer offer an online search of the Official Record Index.

While the Official Records Index is not available online, we offer a number of free and useful options to help members of the public gain access to the type of information you may be seeking from the Clerk-Recorder’s Office. These services are free of charge and information about them can be obtained at Home - Office of the County Clerk-Recorder - County of Santa Clara (


Real estate records for Santa Clara County since 1850 are available after they have been recorded.  These records will only be available for purchase in person or by mail. This affords greater privacy protections to all individuals whose information appears in the database, and furthers use of the index only for lawful and appropriate purposes.
