Kaufman County Clerk Information

The County Clerk’s duties as set out in the State Constitution and in Texas State Statutes, include keeping all public records, whether they be records of the Commissioner’s Court, the County Court, the County Courts-at-Law, or any records filed by the general public.

The Clerk’s offices contain a library of records, such as deeds, maps, plats, and other records pertaining to property located within the county. These records are open to the public and provide valuable data regarding the size, shape and location, legal description and property owner of all property situated in the County.
