Public Information

Changes to Deeds -- The Register of Deeds office cannot make changes to
deeds.  A deed is a legal document.  Changing a name or taking a member off
your deed requires a legal document to be recorded.  Legal documents such as
warranty deeds, quit claim deeds, etc., that convey title from one property
owner to a new owner, or change names on a deed are usually drafted by
attorneys, or by paralegals or legal secretaries under the supervision of an
attorney.  The Register of Deeds office does not advise how these documents
should be completed.  We recommend consulting an attorney for any change to
your deed.  When completed, it should be recorded in our office along with a
Real Estate Transfer Form.
