Online Resources: Land Records

The Prince William County Clerk of Circuit Court Land Records Management System (LRMS) is an online database to help the general public locate a recorded document from a computer terminal.  It's a great option for anyone who might not otherwise be able to visit the Courthouse in person.

Searching the index is free, but if the user wants to view or print a document there is a fee of $0.50 per image and an Internet Convenience Fee of $2.00 at the time of purchase.  (If you accidentally view/print the wrong image, you will still be charged the fee.  There is no refund.)
I've found the LRMS to be quite helpful in surname searches or when I don't have the book/page number of a Deed that I'm looking for.

Indexes and Images available on LRMS for Prince William County and the cities of Manassas and Manassas Park include, but are not limited to:

Deeds and Related Land Records - Indexes and images from Jan. 1, 1918 to present.

Fiduciaries (Wills, Probate, List of Heirs) - Indexes and images from Jan. 3, 1981 to present.

Marriage licenses – Indexes only from Jan. 1, 1981 to present.
