Register of Deeds Website to Include New Search Features

The Mecklenburg County Register of Deeds Office has added new website
features that dramatically improve user access to records and optimize
search results.

Highlights of the improved site:

• The results of real estate searches are easier to print and
• Search results can be sorted by any column
• An online request form to become a registered user.
Registered users will have access to more vital record information.
Previous rules forced those requesting a log-in to appear in person
and present a valid ID to register.

permanent index data.

experience for customers who utilize our website," said David
Granberry, Mecklenburg County Register of Deeds. "With the ability to
see temporary real estate indexes, website users will have access to
information that is as current as possible."

Information and images related to documents in the temporary index are
subject to change before they reach permanent status, Granberry said.
