Welcome to the Macomb County Clerk-Register of Deeds New Land Records Search

The Macomb County Clerk's Office now features a new state-of-the-art land records search.  If you are a new user, it is recommended that you use the Basic Document Search to quickly find Macomb County property records. Please note that Macomb County has a name-based index, and searching by "Name" is the easiest way to conduct a search.

Here are a few search tips:

  • Individual Names should be entered "Last Name" First (e.g. "Smith James"). For a broader search, use only a last name and first initial.
     
  • Organizational Names should be entered as they are spelled (e.g. "Nevada Bank").
     
  • If you are unsure of the "Document Type," leave the "Document Type" field blank!  For example, if you choose "Deed" as the "Document Type," your search results may not include a "Warranty Deed," "Quit Claim Deed," etc.
     
  • When searching a name, make sure that you look through all results until a different name appears since there may be variations or additional information belonging to that name.
     
  • Do not enter any punctuation in the fields. (e.g. John's Warehouse should be entered as "Johns Warehouse")

The Advanced Document Search is typically used by title companies and other professional services.
