Dear Attorneys, Title Abstract Companies and the general public,

Effective August 1st, 2016 :

In an on-going effort to maintain the security of our County’s vital databases and programs, the Schoharie County IT Department will be using a second, secure database with a one (1) Day viewing delay for our on-line, web-based County Clerk Search program. This only affects the on-line viewing capabilities from your home or office computers. If you come into the County Clerk’s Office and use the public computers, the information will be available to view as soon as it is recorded or filed and scanned into the system.

Generally speaking, if a document is recorded at 9:00am on Monday, it will be viewable on Tuesday morning. If a document is recorded at 4:00pm on Monday it will be viewable on Tuesday morning as well. Please keep in mind that as with all documents, they are only viewable as quickly as our scanning staff can get them scanned. Our Office prides itself on our consistently quick turn-around time for all documents filed or recorded.

Should you experience any issues or have concerns, please feel free to contact me at your convenience. My door is always open.
