The Registry of Deeds is the office that processes information as it relates to the selling and buying of real property.
It is a public office open to the legal profession and general public for researching the records. Besides 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 condo association, etc.
Plans of surveyed properties are also on record. The Registry houses a collection of plans of deceased surveyors that have been donated to the Registry and available for research. The Samuel Wadsworth collection, Heman Chase collection and the William House collection are available in the Registry.
The office provides information to the 22 towns and 1 city in Cheshire County regarding the sale of properties for tax purposes. There is much information available in the early volumes and anyone interested in genealogy will probably find it useful to research the records.
All documents have been micro-filmed for security purposes, and the office is now in process of scanning all documents and plans for ease in locating information. Copies of documents are available immediately if the customer is present. Requests by mail will be honored if book and page is known and payment is made at the time of request.
A closing room is available for public use. Please call ahead, (603) 352-0403, and speak with Audrey to reserve.
You can now access records using Tapestry, an alternative “pay as you go” resource, for searching land records.
