Welcome to Carroll County Registry of Deeds Website


The Registry of Deeds office reopens to the public on 29 June 2020, subject to the following conditions and restrictions intended to maintain the health and safety of us all.

All persons entering the Carroll County Administration Building and the Registry of Deeds will be screened, temperatures recorded, masks will be donned and a questionnaire will be answered and logged. If you have a temperature of 100.00 degrees or higher or have recently travelled to or from a COVID hot spot, access to the office will be denied.

Documents will be received for recording at the front counter, as well as electronically and via common carrier (UPS, FEDEX, USPS). If you would rather avoid the office screening procedure, recordings can be presented by appointment. Please call upon arrival and we will meet you outside the building to review and accept return information and payments. Remember to bring blank checks for payment (one for recording fees, one for L-Chip and one for transfer tax).

The website, which includes images of Carroll County indexes and recorded instruments, can be viewed 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

We ask for your help and cooperation as we navigate to minimize the risk to the staff and our community as we reopen amidst the COVID-19 pandemic.

Please feel free to call the Registry if you have questions.
Thank you.


I am honored to serve the citizens of Carroll County, thank you for having the confidence to elect me. As your Register, I am committed to ensuring your documents are recorded in a timely manner, accurately indexed and safely archived. The staff and I are pleased to offer access to the redacted Registry records through this website.

The Registry of Deeds is the office that processes information as it relates to the selling and buying of real property and safely stores the official land records for 19 towns and unincorporated areas in Carroll County. It is a public office open to the legal profession and general public for researching the records. In addition to deeds, mortgages, liens and attachments, there are many other types of documents pertaining to land records filed with the Registry, for example, covenants for developments, by-laws for condominium associations, etc. Plans of surveyed/subdivided property are also found in the records.

There is much information available in the early volumes and anyone interested in genealogy will probably find it useful to research the records. The official records maintained on this website and in the office of the Registry of Deeds are dated from 1840 to present.

Records dated 1962 to present are computerized. The computers enable the user to locate both index and image at the touch of a button. You may also order copies of any documents of interest. All recorded plans are available for viewing. Copies of plans are also available.

We welcome you to visit the Registry of Deeds in person at 95 Water Village Road, Ossipee, New Hampshire. From Route 16, travel west on Route 28 approximately 1 mile to Water Village Road, a/k/a Route 171, then turn North and travel 1 mile to the Carroll County Administration Building. The Registry of Deeds is on the first floor of the Administration Building. Business hours are 8:00 AM – 4:00 PM, Monday through Friday. Recording counter closes at 3:30 PM daily.

Any time you have questions or concerns, our staff will be happy to assist you; or please feel free to contact us at the Registry at (603) 539-4872 or by email at
