FORT MYERS, Fla. — Fort Myers residents and businesses can once again record deeds, mortgages, and other official records in person at the Clerk of Court’s Recording office. Lee County Clerk Linda Doggett announced the downtown Fort Myers location is accepting customers under new safety guidelines starting Nov. 17.

“We understand that mailed documents may take days to receive and record, extending the time it takes to purchase or build a home,” Doggett said. “Customers can now immediately record documents and have them certified without delay.”

Anyone visiting the office will be required to wear a face mask, maintain six feet distance from others, and go through a temperature and health screening.

Appointments are not needed to record documents, but they are required to apply for a passport. To schedule an appointment for passport services, customers can call 239-533-5007. Marriage licenses and ceremonies continue to be provided by appointment via video conference at LeeClerk.org [leeclerk.org].

The Recording Office drop-boxes located at the entrance of the Cape Coral Government Complex and Administration Building downtown Fort Myers will remain for your recording convenience.

The Clerk of Court’s Recording office is located on the 2nd floor of the County Administration Building, 2115 Second Street in Fort Myers.
