Sussex County has temporarily had to suspend its e-recording service. Until further notice, all documents for recording should be submitted using USPS, FedEx, UPS, or mail courier services. We are working to correct the issue and apologize for the inconvenience to our customers. Please check back for future updates.
Also note that, due to circumstances surrounding the COVID pandemic, documents submitted for recording can take as much as 6-8 weeks to be processed and returned.
The Office of County Clerk has been responsible for maintaining a record of real property transfers in the county since 1794. Over the years, the types of records have evolved, as has the method for recording these documents. Today, with the use of imaging technology and a modern electronic land records management system, the Sussex County Clerk’s office is able to offer its customers Level II e-recording.
