Real Estate / Land Records

The primary source for information about recorded real estate documents in Iowa is, the official statewide web site sponsored by Iowa’s elected county recorders.


This County Land Record Information System (CLRIS) was developed as a result of legislation enacted by the Iowa General Assembly in 2003.  The purpose of this legislation was for “planning and implementing electronic recording and electronic transactions in each county and statewide internet websites to provide electronic access to records and information”.

Currently all Jefferson County land records since January 1, 2004 are available on the website and are downloaded daily.  Historical data (pre-Jan. 1, 2004) will be downloaded as time and resources permit.  The documents are indexed and you can view or print copies of the images.

Note: Site registration is required to log into the website, but there is no fee to do so, nor is there a fee to view the index and/or print the images.

Notice: County offices will be closed on Monday, February 19, 2024 in observance of Presidents' Day. The County Auditor's Office will be open.
