The Register of Deeds office will continue to adhere to CDC and local authorities’ recommendations to promote social distancing to protect all staff and public during this COVID-19 Emergency.

  • Mr. Olive strongly encourages the public to utilize his office’s online services such as electronic recording of real estate documents and online requests for birth, death and marriage certificates.
  • His office is allowing limited public access. This access allows 3 customers in our Vital Records area at one time and 2 customers in our Real Estate area at one time.  There is a drop-box by the Register of Deeds Office door to drop off documents for recording and mailing.   Our Vault area will be used to service customers for passport processing.   The Vault area can be used for title updates by practicing social distancing. If others are outside waiting, we ask that you please limit yourself to 5 minutes.        
  • Couples wishing to obtain a marriage license should call 919-989-5161 for an appointment. The couple will need to complete the online marriage application prior to coming to the Register of Deeds office and then will be assisted in the hallway to comply with the 6 feet distancing recommendations.
  • Citizens needing to complete their Notary Oath will be assisted in the hallway, however, appointments are preferred.
  • Passports are being processed by appointment only.  However, we are advised from the Passport Agency there will be a significant delay of several months for the processing to be completed.

The public is encouraged to call the Register of Deeds office at 919-989-5160 or 919-989-5161 if there are any questions
