Register of Deeds

For any vital record applications, and notaries, we ask that you please call to schedule an appointment for your visit. You may reach our office at 919-731-1449. When sending requests for vital records, please enclose $1.00 for postage. We are currently unable to provide amendment services to anyone out of County requesting amendments until further notice. 

Marriages are also included in this interruption, until further notice.  Unless you are a Funeral Home, this interruption does not apply to you.  We are asking the Funeral Homes, any certificates ten or more; you are asked to drop off your request to this office, and we will call you as soon as the certificates are ready.

No changes or restrictions have been placed regarding Real Estate.  We are asking, as much as possible, that you reframe from bringing your instruments for recordings in the office of Register of Deeds after 4:30 p.m.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.  We are diligently working hard to correct this minor setback.  Your cooperation and support in this matter is greatly appreciated.

The primary responsibilities of the Register of Deeds Office are to record, maintain and make available to the general public real estate documents and other documents on file in the office. The staff also issues marriage licenses, birth, death, and marriage certificates, notary oaths, and maintains records of armed forces discharges.
