Deposit Accounts

The Clerk's office provides a Deposit Account as a courtesy to frequent customers. This account may be used to pay for Recording Fees, copies, etc. or in the event that payments sent in with documents are short the required amount. The account works the same as any prepaid account in that funds are kept on deposit and each item charged is deducted from the account balance. Charges may not be made to the account unless sufficient funds are available. Once you have established a Deposit Account, you may order copies via email, mail or in person. Certified copies must be sent to you by mail. Uncertified copies may be mailed, faxed or emailed.

PLEASE NOTE: Once you have established a Deposit Account, you may also request to view the account details online. To request this type of online account as a Registered User or Attorney, please fill out the User Agreement and follow the instructions on the form. Upon submitting the form, you will be contacted within 48 business hours with your Registered User account details.

If you already have a Registered User or Attorney Account, please send an email to publicview@mypinellasclerk.org. In your email, include your user information along with your User ID and we will link the Registered User (or Attorney) Account to your Deposit Account so that you may view these records online.
