Master-In-Equity

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.
