Register of Deeds
Please see this important message: Coronavirus update: Register of Deeds by appointment only.
NEW notary legislation gives a notary an extra 45 days to take their oath with the Register of Deeds when it is due for commission or recommission. Therefore, someone receiving his or her commission on March 10 has until June 8 to complete the task. Anyone else commissioned through July 31, 2020 will also have 90 days to take the oath with the Register of Deeds instead of the normal 45 days. All of the notaries affected will reset in our database.
The Register of Deeds office serves as custodians and managers of your most important records. The Register of Deeds is elected to four-year terms by the citizens of Surry County . It is the mission of the Register of Deeds to preserve the integrity of the records and to make them easily accessible to the public.
