Recorded Document Research and Copies
Property deeds, mortgages, reconveyances, liens, releases, power of attorney, easements, affidavits, mining claim affidavits, and many other document types are recorded and maintained by the Clerk's Office at 10 S. Oakdale, Room 114, Medford. These records are available to the public either in person or online.
The Clerk’s office does not perform title searches. Any research of historical documents may require a visit to the Recording Office in person to conduct your search. The Clerk's hours are from 8 a.m. to 11:15 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.

Carts containing only regular copies are available to be immediately downloaded. Any cart that contains a certified copy must be processed manually and will be mailed through the United States Postal Service.

Property Data Online
The Property Data Online System (PDO), a product owned and maintained by the Assessor’s office, may be used to access information such as sales histories, property maps and aerial photos, assessed values and improvements, ownership, tax payment information, building and land use permit history, and zoning information. When conducting research of a property, it is sometimes helpful to start by accessing the Assessor’s sales history and reviewing the deed card in order to obtain the historical deed instrument numbers by year or volume and page. These numbers can be used to begin your research within the Clerk’s Digital Research Room or in person in the Clerk’s office.
