Welcome to Carroll County Registry of Deeds Website

** Notice **

The Registry of Deeds office is closed to the public until further notice. With the increasing concerns about COVID-19 (Coronavirus), the Carroll County Commissioners will be closing the Carroll County Administration Building which houses the Registry of Deeds office tonight. Health officials advise that to slow a spreading virus, the right time for decisive action is before it is established in our community. We ask for your help and support as we navigate through this rapidly evolving situation.

The staff of the Registry will continue to work in the office and will strive to maintain secure operations.We have identified and implemented policies and procedures to maintain the health and safety of our staff and anticipate operations continuing.

• We continue to record instruments presented electronically.
• We continue to record instruments presented by appointment. Please call upon arrival and we will meet you outside the building to review and accept return information and payments. You can help us streamline the recording process by bringing blank checks with you for payment (one for recording fees, one for LChip and one for transfer tax).
• We continue to receive and record instruments presented by commercial carriers (UPS, FEDEX, etc.) and United States Postal Service.

If the staff need to work remotely, a plan will be executed to accept recordings while maintaining order of receipt priority. We recognize priority of recording is of crucial concern to landowners and clients. As this situation is rapidly changing, if timeliness of recording is of a concern, we ask that you check back to read further notices. Lastly, please feel free to call the Registry if you have concerns. We appreciate your understanding and cooperation as we work together to minimize the risks of COVID-19 in our community. We will continue to provide updates as needed and remain focused on our professional service to our community in Carroll County, New Hampshire.

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.
