Welcome to our New County Clerk Document Search Application
April 5, 2012 - County Clerk Brad Kendall and County Executive Marc Molinaro are pleased to announce the roll-out of our enhanced County Clerk Document Search application. This system provides you with many advanced features and improvements. If you encounter any technical issues, please click - HERE - to let us know. If you have questions about the data itself, please click - HERE - to contact the County Clerk.
You will now be able to view the digital images of the filed land and legal documents though the County Website. This will be a huge improvement and savings as you no longer will have to drive to the County Office Building to review documents and get "uncertified" printed copies. Images may be viewed on-line free-of-charge and there will be a minimal $0.50/page charge to download/print “uncertified” documents.
If you need "certified" document copies, these may be ordered as follows:
A certified copy is $11.00. (This includes a search fee of $5.00.)
Make checks out to:
Dutchess County Clerk's Office
22 Market Street
Poughkeepsie, NY 12601
ATTN: Second Floor Mail
As you use the new system, an On-line Help is available to assist you in finding the information and documents. We hope you find the enhanced Document Search system a useful and convenient tool.

Additionally, businesses and the public that often print documents, may create an account, and use these funds as needed, to pay for the documents. Those with an existing account for the 2nd Floor County Office Document Search area can use that same account to pay for document images on the Website.
