Digital Research Room
Documents recorded and maintained by the County Clerk Recording Office include property deeds, mortgages, reconveyances, liens, easements, affidavits, mining claim affidavits, and power of attorney, etc. Documents recorded after January 1, 1984, are searchable by name, instrument number, document date and document type and are available to purchase online through the Digital Research Room.
Digital Resource Room Users have the ability to add regular or certified copies of documents to an online cart, modify the cart, checkout, and complete payment through Point and Pay. If there are no certified items in the order, once payment is completed, the document will be made available for download. Requests for copies of certified documents will be processed and mailed.
- Regular Copy: $4.00 for the first page and $.25 each additional page, per document.
- Certified Copy: $7.75 for the first page and $.25 each additional page, per document.
- Property deeds may be viewed free of charge.
- Fees are payable in cash, check or debit/credit card (Visa, MasterCard, American Express or Discover). If you are purchasing your document with a check, please add your phone number. If you choose to pay via credit/debit card, please note that a small service fee is charged by the debit/credit card servicer.
Documents recorded prior to 1984 are available but are not yet indexed (Index information is available in the Clerk’s Recording Office). If you wish to obtain a copy of a historical document, please contact our office for assistance at 541-774-6152. Please note that the Clerk’s office does not perform title searches. Any research of historical documents may require a visit to the Recording Office in person to conduct your search.
Property Data Online
The Property Data Online System (PDO), a product owned and maintained by the Assessor’s office, may be used to access information such as sales histories, property maps and aerial photos, assessed values and improvements, ownership, tax payment information, building and land use permit history, and zoning information. When conducting research of a property, it is sometimes helpful to start by accessing the Assessor’s sales history and reviewing the deed card in order to obtain the historical deed instrument numbers by year or volume and page. These numbers can be used to begin your research within the Clerk’s Digital Research Room or in person in the Clerk’s office.
To search the PDO system by property address, use Property Data Express and follow the instructions below:
- First, enter the address of the property you wish to find. For the street, enter the name of the street only. Do not enter Avenue, Street, Way, Circle, etc.
- After submitting the inquiry, the search results will be displayed. Find the record you are searching for from the list of returned results.
