Errors and Omissions: When the County Clerk makes a Mistake

Insurance for the County Clerk and Recorder

The County Clerk’s office is in charge of all the paperwork.

This includes things like:

  • Liens

  • Mortgages

  • Marriage certificates

  • Death certificates

  • Assumed names

  • Gun permits

  • Notary bond

  • Processing of passports

  • Other important documents


Employed clerks and recorders must meticulously account for all legal papers. Improperly filed or recorded deeds, permits, certificates and the like can cause negative consequences for the county as well as involved parties.

This is where related insurance coverage, Errors and Omissions, steps in, protecting employees from charges and lawsuits.

The Errors and Omissions insurance coverage is generally instated upon the clerk/recorder’s election or appointment time.
