Secured Remote Access

According to VA Code Section 17.1-279(2), every Circuit Court Clerk shall provide secure remote access to land records in accordance with 17.1-294 on or before July 1, 2008. The Circuit Court of the City of Roanoke provides this secure remote access (SRA) through the Supreme Court's RMS system as well as the Logan's System online remote access. Approval for the use of SRA is at the discretion of the Clerk of the Court. A subscription fee of $600 per year is required along with a notarized application.

Information Available on the Secured Remote Access
As stated above, the Roanoke City Court uses two separate systems, the Supreme Court (RMS) system as well as the Logan System. Each system covers separate time periods and are both included in the $600 yearly subscription. On each system you will find a complete index of all the documents covered during that time period. With regards to the Supreme Court System, for the time covered between 1991 and mid 1997, only an index is available.

This means that there are no images available from 1991 to mid-1997 on the Supreme Court system, however there is an index of the information for that time period which provides the names of all the parties involved. If you need any images from 1991 to mid-1997, you may obtain copies of the documents from the Circuit Court Clerk's office either in person or by mailed in request. Please be advised that there is a cost of $0.50 per page for any copies requested directly from the Circuit Court.

The following is a complete breakdown of what information is available through both of our systems.
