Records Vault

Duties and Responsibilities

The primary role of the Record Vault is to house the official records relating to real property. Employees in Gulfport and Biloxi maintain a system of indexes by legal description in order for attorneys and abstractors to be able to research the history of any parcel of land in Harrison County.

They also help the general public locate and copy any of these records, such as deeds to their property and dimensions of subdivision lots. Employees, however, cannot give legal advice on property matters, research titles or perform lien searches; people should contact a real estate attorney for such information.

Older Chancery Court files and related records are also stored in the Record Vault, along with land rolls and tax receipts for earlier years. Many of these records date back to Harrison County's creation in 1841.
