eCertify for Official Records

For your convenience, the Lake County Clerk of the Circuit Court and Comptroller offers online purchase of electronically certified (eCertified) documents recorded in the Official Records. Official Records include, but are not limited to, deeds, mortgages, satisfactions, liens, marriage licenses, powers of attorney, notices of commencement, agreements, judgments, and financing statements.

Each electronically certified document uses advanced encryption features to produce a tamper-proof electronically certified document with a unique Clerk of Court digital signature.

NOTE: ECertify purchases are non-refundable.

Information about eCertified Copies

Before purchasing, verify the entity receiving the document accepts electronically certified documents.

To purchase an eCertified document online, the document must be viewable on the website. Florida law restricts some documents from being viewable on our website, which makes them ineligible to be eCertified online.

If the entity receiving the document does not accept electronic certifications or the required document is not available for viewing on the website, you may obtain a manually stamped certified copy by mailing your payment with the Official Records Order Form or by visiting one of our two locations:

  • Lake County Courthouse
    550 W. Main Street, Tavares, FL (North Wing, 3rd floor)
    Free parking is located in the garage at 200 N. Sinclair Ave.
  • Lake County Records Storage Facility
    313 Bloxham Ave., Tavares, FL

Uncertified copies of Official Records are free to view online through the Official Records Search.

To view fees for eCertified Official Records, visit the Fees page.

Upon completion of your purchase, you may download and save the document. You will also receive an email with the certified encrypted PDF document attached. The amount of time to deliver the email depends on your email server. If you do not receive the email in your inbox, CHECK YOUR SPAM OR JUNK FOLDER. You will also receive an email with the payment receipt from the payment processor.

Adobe Acrobat Reader is required to view eCertified Official Records. Download it for free here.

Electronically certified documents can be authenticated by clicking the link on the document's cover page, scanning the QR code on the cover page with a smartphone, or visiting the authentication website.
