Notice Regarding Book/Page Numbers in the Manatee County Clerk’s Official Records
Beginning January 1, 2020, the Manatee County Clerk of the Circuit Court and Comptroller will no longer assign Book and Page numbers to documents recorded in Official Records. The Clerk will continue assigning consecutive Instrument Numbers as the official register numbers to reflect the order in which documents have been recorded. For historical purposes, documents recorded prior to January 1, 2020, will remain indexed and searchable by Book and Page. If you create or use forms that reference Book and Page numbers, you should modify those forms to capture or reference Instrument Numbers for any documents recorded on or after January 1, 2020. Recorded plat maps will continue to receive Book and Page numbers.
We offer e-certified official records, to learn about how to use this service, check a reciept, or verify a document please visit: https://www.manateeclerk.com/departments/general-information/e-certify/
