Fayette County land records, deeds now available online. Here’s how to find them
Fayette County residents can now access most land records, including deeds, mortgages and plats, online.
Fayette County Clerk Don Blevins Jr. said residents can now go to https://fayettedeeds.com or the Fayette County clerk’s website at www.fayettecountyclerk.com for access.
All of the records are free.
Fayette County was one of the last county clerk’s office to move all of its land records online due to having a different software vendor than many clerks in the state.
The move was prompted by a 2019 bill that updated fees for county clerk’s offices that made it possible for clerks to move documents online.
“This bill literally pulled Kentucky’s records systems out of the horse and buggy days and made this project possible,” Blevins said.
Records are available from 1990 to the present.
Converting the system from paper to digital records began in 2021.
Blevins, who will step down as clerk on Jan. 31, said the clerk’s office will continue to digitize records going forward. Former Lexington-Fayette Urban County Councilwoman Susan Lamb has been appointed to replace Blevins, who served in the position for 13 years.
“This is just the beginning. Now that we have the technological foundation, we can continue projects to digitize every document we have, some dating as far back as the late 1700’s,” he said.
