Harrison County: New Filing & Search System Hiccup

The Harrison County Chancery Clerk’s office implemented a new computer filing and search system effective as of September 20, 2021. However, numerous problems have been reported with this new filing and search system. Specifically, it has been reported that since the initial transition started on September 17, 2021, and September 30, 2021 nothing new was indexed in the old system and no general instruments filed between those dates were indexed in the new system. This includes federal tax liens and civil judgments. Therefore, any title searches performed in Harrison County between September 17th through September 30th are subject to unindexed filings. While the issues have reportedly been resolved, if you have conducted a title search in Harrison County during this period, you may want to consider re-running names on the previous searches to check for missed instruments.
