Public Access is being limited in Sacramento County

Sacramento County is now following a trend of the many other counties (most notably Los Angeles County) and effective July 1, 2014 it will charge for access to on-line court records.  I expect that the same will shortly be true for the County Recorder’s records as well.

You can go to https://services.saccourt.ca.gov/ for the specifics involved in researching what was once freely available access to public records.  In the meantime here is a copy from the Court’s web site regarding what you can expect to pay.

A public access fee will be charged when searching for cases by name. In order to conduct a name search, you must first create an account then purchase the desired number of name searches. The fees are as follows:

  • $1.00 for one (1) name search
  • $3.50 for five (5) name searches
  • $25.00 for 75 name searches
  • $250.00 for 30 consecutive days of unlimited name searches
  • $2,500.00 for 365 consecutive days of unlimited name searches

There are no refunds for unused name search credits. Name search credits do not expire, with the exception of the 30- and 365-day name search options.

Happy hunting!
