Vault Appointments and Remote Access Accounts

Access to our land records index and some scanned documents (back to @1990 for many documents, and all plats are scanned) is available through our remote system. To open an account, please contact us at or (859) 253-3344 for information and an application. There is a $200.00 connection fee to initialize your account, and the system charges usage fees at $.25/minute.  We are waiving usage fees through the general election on November 3.

Appointments to conduct research, obtain copies, or drop documents for recordings are now available.

Appointments are in 1.5 hour blocks from 8:30 a.m. - 2:30 p.m. (ending at 4:00 p.m.).  You may schedule concurrent appointments.  Several missed appointments may result in future appointments being cancelled.
