     The Land Records Department handles the filing of all Conveyances, Mortgages, and other instruments relating to real estate. These records are entered on a daily register, indexed and then bound in the proper record books/public computers maintained for their respective categories. Our Land Records start in 1802 and our computer records start in 1973.


      Conveyance records consist of all deeds, exchanges, partitions, judgments recognizing heirs and other instruments, the effect of which is to transfer real property or interests and rights therein. Oil and gas leases, mineral sales, royalty deeds, rights of way are also included in the class of instruments recorded in the Conveyance Records.


      Mortgage records contain mortgages, judgments, liens and other encumbrances affecting real estate. Cancellation of these instruments is effected by a marginal notation made on the record when a proper voucher evidencing payment or satisfaction thereof is presented and filed. Mortgage certificates are also provided by the Land Records Department.


      Other records maintained in the Land Records are Bond Records, Corporation Charters, Partnerships, Certificates of Trade Names, Oath of Offices of Public Officials, Marriage Licenses, etc. Each recorded instrument must be indexed for reference.





      UCC filings are accepted by the local Clerk of Court and are filed numerically and indexed in the Statewide data base.  A certificate setting forth UCC filings (UCC-11) are available for fees set by the State.  A search in any parish will reflect statewide filings.
