East County Office

OCTOBER 29, 2021 – NOVEMBER 1, 2021


The Ventura County Clerk-Recorder division will be closed on Friday, October 29, 2021, due to the conversion and implementation of its new land information system. Starting at 6:00 p.m. on Thursday, October 28, 2021, more than 15 million index and images from the existing system will be converted to the new system.

The new land information system will have enhanced functionality that will improve operations and offer users better public search features.
