If you received a letter offering to copy your certified property deed, Sarasota County Clerk of the Circuit Court and County Comptroller Karen Rushing urges you to decline the offer and go to her office for that document. You will save time and money.
Property deeds are public records. The Clerk's Office provides these documents starting at $3 a copy — considerably less than $59.50 cited in solicitation letters received recently in Sarasota County.
You can print a noncertified copy of your documents for FREE by going to www.SarasotaClerk.com—choose Online Services and look for Official Records.
For a Certified Copy, call the Clerk’s Office at 941.861.7425 or visit your local office at 2000 Main Street in Sarasota or 4000 S. Tamiami Trail in Venice.
