The Registry of Deeds is Norfolk County's principal office for land records information.
The Registry receives and records hundreds of thousands of documents each year, and is a basic resource for title examiners, mortgage lenders, municipalities, homeowners, and others with a need for secure, accurate, and accessible land record information.
The Registry of Deeds has been a vital component of County government since 1793, the year Norfolk County was created through an act of the legislature signed into law by Governor John Hancock.
The Registry is a County office operated under the supervision of the Register of Deeds, an elected County official. By virtue of his office, the Register of Deeds is also an Assistant Recorder of the Massachusetts Land Court. Transactions recorded in the land court section of the Registry deal with registered land, the title to which is insured by the Commonwealth.
Registry operations are effectively self-supporting, and generate significant surplus revenues which support the operations of county government and contribute to the State's general revenue.
