A FOIA Request is not required for public records filed in the Horry County Register of Deeds office. These records include deeds, mortgages, plats, condo liens, state/federal tax liens, mechanics liens, power of attorney documents, easements, HOA Restrictions/Amendments, etc. The Register of Deeds copy fees are designated and approved by County Council and do not follow the same copy fee schedule as FOIA requests.
You may request a copy of the ROD records in person or by mail request. For records requested in person, there is a $3.50 research fee along with a $1.00 per page copy fee. However, if you provide the book & page of the requested record, the research fee is waived. If a certified copy is desired, there is an additional $2.00 fee.
For mail requests, you may fill out an ROD Customer Service Request Form and submit a check with the appropriate copy fees. Mail-in request fees are $8.00 per document for the first 4 pages and then $1.00 for each additional page. If the document is a plat, then the copy fee is $10.00. There is also an extra $2.00 fee for certified copies requested by mail. You may research our Records to determine the page count or contact the Register of Deeds office at 843-915-5430.
