The image is also available the same day of recording. There are occasional exceptions due to equipment failures and high recording volumes.

Errors and Omissions: This is a working index and may contain errors and omissions due to errors in the preparation of the original document or in the indexing. The indexes are verified within 7 days after they are recorded. It is recommended to search several different ways for each property, such as by both a "quick search" (party name), and an "advanced search," (combination of legal description and other pertinent information).
Images: The images are authentic reproductions of the actual document and the quality is usually good. However, blue or light-colored ink used on original documents will not reproduce well. A few older documents may be illegible since there was no requirement for legibility until 1997.
Wall dates: The general rule is that the grantor-grantee (or party) index is available the same day after being recorded, and the tract index (by legal description) is available within the same day of being recorded. The image is also available the same day of recording. There are occasional exceptions due to equipment failures and high recording volumes.
