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.
