We’ve come a long way with Court records going online.
Right now, you can search property ownership records via the Davidson County Assessor’s Office’s Webpro system. Davidson County Circuit, General Sessions, and Chancery Court filings are all available online. Federal and Bankruptcy Court pleadings are available online via PACER, and attorneys can even file documents online.
I didn’t realize this, but Davidson County Criminal Court records are also available online. You can search the case information at this website.
While this isn’t designed to provide a full background check on individuals, this search function could be useful to employers or other people needing to search the background of others.
