RCHES:  The Colorado County Clerk and Staff will not conduct searches that are not authorized by statute. 
The record search authorized by statute is Federal Tax Liens (Texas Property Code  14.004(d).               

The Error & Omissions Insurance of the  County Clerk only covers actions of the County Clerk and her staff, which are statutorily required duties.  Therefore, it is in the best interest of the county, as well as the clerk individually, to refrain from performing any action (including records searches) which is not legally required.

Attorney General Opinion WW-607 (1959) Summary states: "The County Clerk has no duty to search the records under his control and guarantee the correctness thereof."

Establishing a Family Cemetery

The Texas Legislature recently amended the Property Code to provide a streamlined procedure for addressing discriminatory provisions in real property records. Although state law already declared restrictions and provisions in real property records that prohibit the use, sale or transfer of real property to a person based on race, color, religion, or national origin to be void and unenforceable, Senate Bill 30, which took effect on September 1, 2021, establishes a  process for a property owner, or another person that the owner authorizes, to request a judicial  review of specific property records to  determine whether they contain prohibited discriminatory provisions.

The bill sets out the contents of the documents required to be submitted to the court as well as a suggested format for the court’s findings and order. Under certain circumstances, the court may issue its determination without conducting a hearing. No filing fees may be charged under the statute.

To view the language of the bill and the format for filing with the court as well as the format for the court’s findings and order, use the link: 87(R) SB 30 - Enrolled version (texas.gov)
