These official records may be found in the Fairfax County Circuit Court’s Court Public Access Network (CPAN) system. They may also be found in the deed books available at the Land Records Division of the County Circuit Court. They are located in Suite 317 of the Fairfax County Courthouse (4110 Chain Bridge Rd).
