Register of Deeds

Beginning Aug. 17,

Attention Marriage Applicants: Due to COVID-19, the Surry County Register of Deeds is issuing Marriage Licenses by webcam appointments ONLY. If you come to the Judicial Center, and do not have an appointment, you will be asked to call the office to schedule an appointment. For more information, please call 336-401-8150. 

Attention All Notaries: Due to COVID-19, the Surry County Register of Deeds is now issuing Notary Oaths by webcam conferencing appointments only. For more information, please call 336-401-8150. 

The General Assembly unanimously passed House Bill 308: Regulatory Reform Act of 2020 and Governor Roy Cooper signed it. The new law extends the sunset date for conducting emergency video notarizations from August 1, 2020 to March 1, 2021.  

Notaries still have 90 days to take their oaths at the Register of Deeds Office in their county of residence. This length of time was extended from the traditional 45 days that notaries typically have to appear before the Register of Deeds. 

The 90 day period starts on the issue date found at the top of the oath notification letter that notaries receive from our office. The 90-day extension deadline is also March 1, 2021.

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.
