Searching by file number provides the fastest search results. For some databases where documents can be filed at an annex, the annex code is required to retrieve information.

Annex Codes: Some document types can be filed at an annex location. To locate these documents when searching by file number it is necessary to know the code for the annex where the document was filed. Documents filed in the main office do not have an annex code. The following is a list of annex codes:

  • Blank - Downtown
  • B - Chimney Rock
  • C - Clear Lake
  • H - Humble
  • P - Pasadena
  • R - Clay Road
  • S - Cullen Street
  • T - North Shepherd
  • U - Baytown
  • V - Cypresswood
  • W - Scarsdale

To search by File number and annex code, enter the annex code (if required) followed by the File Number (No spaces).
