Search land records:

The Town Clerk’s Office does not search land records for recording information. Land Record Indexes back to 1977 are available online. Otherwise, one must come to the Town Clerk’s Office to perform searches or hire a title searcher. There is no County recording in the State of Connecticut. All documents are recorded in the Clerk’s office of the Town or City where the property is located. The Town of Fairfield only records documents for The Town of Fairfield. There is no recording of documents for Fairfield County.

As is the case with all eight of Connecticut’s counties, there is no county government and no county seat. As an area, it is only a geographical point of reference. In Connecticut, the cities and towns are responsible for all local governmental activities including fire and rescue, schools, and snow removal; in a few cases, neighboring towns will share certain resources.
