Will Records & Research
When does a will or estate become a matter of public record? 
When a will has been admitted to record, the will then becomes a matter of public record and may be viewed on the Clerk’s Office’s public database. 

Where is the Clerk’s Office public database? 
The public database is available in the Clerk’s Office of the Circuit Court of Loudoun County, which is located at 18 East Market Street, in Leesburg, Virginia. 

How do I find the will I am researching? 
Using the public computers in the Clerk’s Office, simply type in the decedent’s last name, highlight wills/fiduciary under the instrument category and then click "search." 

If the will has been admitted to probate, the database will provide a grid showing the public records pertaining to the searched will. These records and images will include the will, the order, the list of heirs, and bond as well as many other documents that are recorded during the estate administration process. 

Do I need an appointment to view will records on the public database? 
No. You may go directly to the Clerk’s Office during their normal business hours. However, you must have the decedent’s last name in order to begin your search. 

Can I make copies of the will records I find? 
Yes. Copies cost $.50 per page. Assistance is available at the Clerk’s Office Information Counter for obtaining and purchasing your copies. 

Archives & Current Probate Records 
The Clerk of the Circuit Court has Will/Probate/Estate records dating from 1757 when the County of Loudoun was formed. If you are interested in Probate records from 1757 to June 30, 1995, they are located in the Archives Department of the Clerk. 

Probate records from July 1, 1995, to the present are available in the public data computers on the second floor of the Clerk's Office or if you are a subscriber to the Clerk's online records you may access Probate via that system. 

There is a $5.00 fee for estate research inquiries. Your request must be in writing, and it must include the $5.00 fee/per request. Researching of estate matters will not be conducted by telephone or email. When sending your request, please make checks payable to: Loudoun County Circuit Court
