Did you know that you don’t have to go all the way to Dedham to do research at the Norfolk Registry of Deeds? It’s true – you can access the Registry online! Here’s the scoop from the Register himself…
“Norfolk County Register of Deeds William P. O’Donnell is providing a friendly reminder to consumers that you don’t have to spend time and money to drive to the Registry to view land records since they are available online via the Registry’s internet-based document research system at www.norfolkdeeds.org.
“Consumers can see up to 6,000,000 scanned land document images dating back to the founding of Norfolk County in 1793. These documents are available via our internet-based document research system.
“Providing secure, accurate and accessible land record information, coupled with our on-site customer service center, is critical to our success at the Norfolk County Registry of Deeds,” said Register O’Donnell.
Elaborating on the Registry’s research capabilities, O’Donnell said, “Land record information can be researched by multiple options, including the name of the property owner and property address. Consumers can access our internet-based document research system for many endeavors such as, to determine property ownership, to research land titles, to review land plans (not plot plans which are not recorded at the Registry) and finally to confirm that documents affecting a person’s property – such as mortgage discharges – have been duly recorded.”
The Registry’s website also provides information on how to obtain copies of land documents. The Registry copy charges are $1.00 per page plus an additional $1.00 per document for postage.
In conclusion, O’Donnell stated, “Providing first-class customer service is a core objective of the Registry. Norfolk County residents and businesses deserve a Registry of Deeds that provides them with access to land record information in an easily accessible and consumer friendly manner. The Registry website www.norfolkdeeds.org does that by bringing the Registry records into your homes and businesses.”
