Official Records Search
The Walton County Clerk & Comptroller's Office is in the process of updating the Official Records system to a new system developed by the Florida Court Clerks & Comptrollers. Walton County has partnered with more than 30 counties in the State to utilize this system. This new system provides a great opportunity for future enhancements and a stable, long-term support organization.

As a result of the system upgrade, the Public Search Website has recently been modified. Some of the functionality you utilized in the past may have changed and we are aware of this issue. We assure you this is only temporary. The Clerk & Comptroller's Office is working diligently with the developer to continually upgrade the site. We are also working to develop an enhanced version in-house, which will be available in the upcoming days. 

We greatly appreciate your patience and understanding during the transition. We are fully committed to providing all the functionality that you expect and will continue to be highly responsive to your concerns.

Please do not hesitate to contact our office at 850.892.8115 if you need assistance with your Official Records search.
