What are Texas Property Records?

One of the most popular public records in Texas is the property record. Property records include information on the deed, mortgage, lien, title, and property ownership history. This information is vital for buyers and sellers of property, as well as for those who are looking to lease or rent a property.


Where to Find Texas Property Records

Texas keeps property records at the county level. If you want to find property records for a specific address, you will need to know the county in which the property is located.

You can find county-level property records by searching the county's website. Once you are on the website, look for a link to the county clerk's office or the county assessor's office. These offices should have information on how to access property records.

You can also utilize a web-based searchable database like InfoTracer, which has gathered property records from all across the country.

When you search for a property record in Texas, you will likely find a document called a deed. This document includes information on the property's legal description, owner, and purchase price.

Some of the other information that may be included in Texas property records include:

  • Size of the property
  • Property value

  • Deed history
  • Mortgage records and history
