Nevada County, California
Nevada County was established in California in 1851. It takes its name from the county seat, Navada City, which was named for the Sierra Nevada Mountains. The state of Nevada, which borders the county on the east, was named ten years later. The region saw a boom during the California Gold Rush, beginning in 1849. The population is 98,764.
The Nevada County Clerk is responsible for recording liens, mortgages, deeds, surety bonds, and other orders and instruments which involve property within the county. The office of the Assessor is accountable for locating taxable property, identifying its owner, establishing its value and then publishing this information in the assessment rolls.
The county clerk strives to provide public records in a transparent manner; this includes timely access to requested public records. According to the California Public Records Act, public records include any written document containing information relating to the conduct of the public’s business which is prepared, owned, used, or retained by Nevada County, subject to certain exceptions. Upon reasonable request during office hours, public records are open to inspection by the general public.
