Vault Appointments and Remote Access Accounts


Access to our land records index and some scanned documents (back to @1990 for many documents, and all plats are scanned) is available through our remote system. To open an account, please contact us at mwatson@fayettecountyclerk.com or (859) 253-3344 for information and an application. There is a $200.00 connection fee to initialize your account, and the system charges usage fees at $.25/minute.  We are waiving usage fees until further notice to mitigate potential COVID exposure for our staff and researchers.

We have reopened our research area to the public.
