Register of Deeds William P. O’Donnell today reminded Norfolk County residents that you don’t have to spend time and money driving 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.
“A review of our Registry website traffic, done via Google Analytics, tells us our most popular feature is providing an online research capability for users to access all our online land documents. Consumers can see up to 6,000,000 scanned land document images dating back to the founding of Norfolk County in 1793. We are bringing the Registry records into people’s homes and businesses.
“Providing secure, accurate and accessible land record information, coupled with our on-site customer service center, is a core objective of the Norfolk County Registry of Deed,” said Register O’Donnell.
Elaborating on the Registry’s research capabilities, O’Donnell said, “Users are able to research land record information by multiple options, including the name of the property owner and property address. Members of the public can access our internet-based document research system for many endeavors such as determining property ownership, researching land titles, review land plans (only plans which are recorded at the Registry) and finally to confirm that documents affecting a person’s property- such as mortgage discharges – have been 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, Register O’Donnell stated, “At the Norfolk County Registry of Deeds, we strive to provide our users first-class customer service each and every day. 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.”
