Lexington, S.C. - County of Lexington officials are continuing to monitor the impact that COVID-19 is having on the Lexington County community and the services the County provides to its residents and visitors.
In an effort to help prevent the spread of coronavirus, County offices located at the County’s Administration Building, located at 212 S. Lake Drive, Lexington, S.C., will no longer allow the general public to enter until further notice. The following offices will provide services under these adjusted operations:

Lexington County Register of Deed’s Office:
Documents that need to be recorded should be done so by using the e-recording option. If you are unable to submit documents via e-recording, mail the documents to the ROD’s office.
If you are not a current user of the e-recording process, we would recommend reviewing which vendor could best meet your recording needs. Below are the three vendors we have integrations with for e-recording. You may email our office at email@example.com, or call us at (803) 785-8307.
E-recording is NOT an option for individuals/citizens. You must be a business and your business will be vetted prior to setting up an account with one of the vendors. We ask if you are mailing in documents that you ensure a self-addressed stamped envelope is enclosed.
Additionally, the Planning Commission meeting, scheduled for March 19, is also canceled.
We urge that all of our employees, residents and visitors follow these hygienic habits to help prevent the spread of the coronavirus and flu:
Wash hands often
Avoid touching eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands
Avoid contact with sick people
Stay at home if you are sick and avoid others
Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or sleeve when coughing or sneezing
The County of Lexington will continue to provide essential services to the County’s residents, but may continue to adjust how such services are provided. Should conditions change, the County will update local media and its residents through social media channels and on the County’s website.
