ALACHUA COUNTY, FL. - Alachua County Clerk of the Circuit Court and County Recorder, J. K. “Buddy” Irby, has received several inquiries regarding a private company that has mailed out a solicitation directed to property owners in Alachua County offering to obtain a copy of a property owner’s deed for $59.50.  Clerk Irby is reminding property owners that they may obtain a certified copy of their deed at the Clerk’s office for $2.50 (add $1.00 for each additional page).  In addition, residents may order a copy over the internet website for only a few dollars more.  Deeds are recorded with the Clerk’s office and Clerk Irby assures all property owners that, regardless of what the solicitation implies, a copy of all recorded deeds will be available at the courthouse in perpetuity should a copy ever be needed.
