The Register of Deeds maintains several indices by which records can be located – deeds by seller’s or mortgagor’s name, buyer’s or mortgager’s name; plats by individual or subdivision name; corporations by name, powers-of-attorney by name, and fixture filings by grantor/grantee. The Register of Deeds staff will be happy to assist you with your search.
Preparation of a Legal Document/Legal Advice
The Register of Deeds is a recording agency only. North Carolina General Statutes prohibit Registers of Deeds from practicing law or giving legal advice (such as authorizing deeds, determining clear title, or answering legal questions concerning liens or deeds).
