Master-in-Equity Court

The Master-in-Equity Court is considered a division of the Circuit Court. The Master-in-Equity hears most foreclosure cases as well as a number of civil, non-jury matters. This is the only South Carolina court in which no action may be initiated. Each case heard by the Master-in-Equity Judge is assigned by the Circuit Court, using a procedural device known as an Order of Reference. Once a case is referred to this court, the Master-in-Equity shall exercise all power and authority which a circuit judge sitting without a jury would have in a similar matter.

 

All records for cases referred to this court are located in the Clerk of Court Records Room on the First Floor of the Judicial Center.

 

Provided to the left are links to additional information, support and assistance in regards to foreclosure and other court actions, judicial sales and court procedures.
