SEARCH – Party name search requires you to
click on the Add button after you enter each name you want to
search on. Subdivision and tract search also requires you to click on
the Add button after you enter all criteria to search on. Record
information only requires you to enter the document number, date range
or search group. Click on the Find button to get search
results. You can narrow your search by combining search criteria, such
as name and beginning date.
SEARCH BY PARTY
– use this format: Gore, Robert. You should look at all
listings with the correct middle initial and those with no middle
initial. Look at each record by clicking on
the plus sign to the left of each entry.
DOCUMENT NUMBER - These are relatively fast.
You can search by the document number of your desired instrument.
SEARCH BY PIN
– Not available at this time
SEARCH BY CSM
– You will need to know the volume and page, or document number of the CSM.
SUBDIVISION – Type the first 5 characters of
the subdivision name and then click on the Look up button.
Select the desired name by clicking on it. Enter a lot and/or block
number and click on the Add button. You cannot search a range of
lots. If you try to search without entering any lots, the program will
search for several minutes and you will likely get an error message.
& RANGE with quarter quarter section: Enter the section,
town and range number and right click on the quarter section. Left
click on the quarter quarter section and click on the Add
button. Remember you will only get unplatted land in this search. If
the land has been platted you must search by the updated legal.
Click on the information in columns 1,3,4 or 5 to expand indexing
information. You can also click on the plus sign to the left of the
first column to view limited information, including the GIS parcel map.
Just click on display legal and click on parcel map number. To view the
image, click on the document number.
BEGINNING A NEW
SEARCH – Be sure to click on the Clear
button before doing a new search.
The general rule is that the grantor/tee (party) index is available the
next working day after being recorded and tract index is available
within 10 working days of the date recorded. The image is available by
noon of the next working day after being recorded. There are occasional
exceptions due to equipment failures and high recording volumes.
Effective date is the last indexed and verified date as shown on the
bottom of the Laredo screen. Note: the effective date will fluctuate
with the volume of documents recorded.
