In an effort to reduce the number of citizen visits to the Loudoun County courts complex in Leesburg and promote social distancing as recommended by health officials, the Clerk of the Circuit Court is expanding remote access services to Loudoun residents for the next 30 days and encouraging citizens to delay any appointments for some other services.
Starting March 18, 2020, Loudoun County residents will be able to obtain remote access to the Clerk of Circuit Court’s deeds and land records for 30 days at no charge. Loudoun residents can email the Clerk’s land records team to inquire and request the necessary digital paperwork to establish a temporary subscription account. Clerk Gary Clemens is waiving the subscription fee. This remote access account will permit residents to access deed, land records and judgment information from home or a remote location, eliminating the need to visit the Clerk’s Office in person. Copies of deeds and land records can also be obtained by emailing the Historic Records & Deed Research Division or calling 703-737-8775.
The Clerk is also encouraging residents to delay any probate appointment until April 13, 2020, to promote social distancing. Residents who require an appointment with the Clerk for purposes of the probate of an estate or being appointed as an executor of an estate should email the Probate Office to discuss setting an appointment for a future date. The Probate Office is exploring other approaches to offer remote/web-based probate meetings.
The Clerk is also encouraging all clients to pay with credit card online or by phone instead of cash to offer more convenience so individuals do not have to visit the office to pay for services such as filing fees, criminal fines and costs, copies of public records and other services. For specific information regarding online or phone payments, visit loudoun.gov/clerk for details.
As more opportunities to offer expanded remote services becomes available, updated information will be posted at loudoun.gov/clerk.
