This program is operated, directed and administered by Optical Storage Solutions Inc. under the direct auspices of Columbia County.  OSS is the supplier of the LANDEX – Land Record Image and Information Management System currently in use by the Recorder of Deeds.

Personal Computer  Information 

Remote access functionality is enabled through the free download and installation of the LANDEX – Remote Client software on the subscriber's PC.  Users' minimum computer configuration should include 32 megabytes of RAM, at least 10 megabytes of free hard disk space, Windows version 95 or higher, and a connection to the internet via an internet service provider.   A printer is needed to print reports and images.

Subscribers are required to establish and maintain a debit account balance for uninterrupted service.  Full installation documentation, operating instructions, and on-line help accompany the software.  Software updates and revisions are downloaded from the host system.

Searching Capabilities

Functionality of the program is practically identical to the Public Access and Retrieval module in the Courthouse.  Screen presentations will differ due to variations in subscribers’ monitor sizes. On-line, client-to-host index retrieval and reporting along with image viewing is standard.  Searches may be performed by any combination of name, instrument number, reference instrument, municipality, file number, book and page number, recorded date, and instrument type.  LANDEX –   Remote Client users may generate account statements on demand.  User ID's and passwords are fully enabled.
