Texas Property Records Online

By Jessica R. Alexander, J.D., M.L.S., Reference Librarian

Some of the smaller Texas counties have their property filings such as deeds and oil and gas leases online for free viewing.  One of these sites is Texas Land Records. You can view records without becoming a subscriber.  If you need copies you can subscribe and get copies of documents for $1.00 per page.
