Washington County Clerk Information
Of all the various responsibilities assigned to the County Clerk, the recording of legal instruments is perhaps the most traditional and basic duty. In terms of sheer volume, legal instruments constitute the major portion of paperwork flowing through the office, requiring the greatest amount of storage space, and usually taking up a larger portion of the clerk’s time than any other single duty. The complexity of the recording process, along with the volume of work and the many different types of instruments required to be filed in the clerk’s office, places much responsibility on the clerk.
