Essex County records will be made available online starting January 5, 2015. Some of the records held by the Essex County Clerk’s Office including mortgages, deeds, liens, court judgements, and lis pendens will be available through this new website. Currently, the planned website will only include more recent documents, dating from 1973. The general public will be able to view many records for free, although there will be a fee for printing. The website is not yet available, though more information can be found on the Essex County Clerk’s website.
