Are Property Records Open to the Public in Harris County?

Property records are mostly considered public information in Harris County, excluding information that is exempted from public disclosure by the Texas Public Information Act or Property Code. Members of the public can inspect and obtain copies of Harris County property records following requests to the custodian. Some restricted information includes:

  • Information related to the location, appraisals, or purchase of real or personal property for a public purpose
  • Certain information on real property descriptions or sales prices received from a private entity by the chief appraiser or comptroller
  • Property tax appraisal photographs that show the interior of an improvement to a property

Where and How to Find Property Records in Harris County

The Harris County Clerk maintains records of real property documents and deeds, while individuals can get appraisal records and property tax information from the Harris County Appraisal District and Harris County Tax Assessor-Collector, respectively. Individuals who are interested in any of these records should direct requests to the appropriate custodian located at:

How to Look Up Harris County Property Records

The Harris County Clerk, Appraisal District, and Tax Assessor-Collector have online search tools to look up property records within their custody. The Harris County Clerk maintains a search portal to search for real property documents using file number, film code, parties’ names, date, and other descriptions. The results of the search will reflect relevant information filed from January 1961 to the day of the last database upgrade, usually the day before the search.

Furthermore, the search tool provided by the Harris County Appraisal District allows individuals to find property records using account number, address, owner name, and other information for advance searches. Similarly, interested persons may also use these details to conduct searches on the tax statement search page maintained by the Harris County Tax Assessor-Collector.

These custodians also offer in-person services and have fillable forms on their websites that should be completed and sent to the specific office.
