How to search for property information using the website

It is easy and convenient for anyone to use the website created for the registries of deeds of several counties, located at By simply using the steps that follow, you will quickly be on your way to searching the records for your property.

Note that all documents recorded in the registries of deeds are available online, including plans. Documents may be called up using a book and page number or a search of the index. Plans are indexed in the town where the property is located under street/road names as well as owner/developer.

4. A Gray Index/Image Search Application box will then appear on your screen. If you do not have Java on your PC, the application will not load. Instead you will see a page that includes information how to check for Java and contains a link to where you can obtain a free copy.

5. The Search Application box will contain an area to the top left where you can enter name information to do an index search, an area at the top right where you can put in a book and page or plan number if you know the document you are looking for. There is an area at the bottom right to login if you have a print charge account with the Registry.

6. Before continuing, you should know the difference between a “grantor” and a “grantee”. A “grantor” is the individual granting/giving/selling the property, and a “grantee” is the person getting/receiving/buying the property.

7. Note the scroll down box “How to Search” with hints for your search. If you are unfamiliar with searching property records, you may want to read these hints prior to continuing.

You may use the “previous” and “next” page icons to view the entire document, or “top” and “bottom” of page buttons to view each individual page in its entirety.

11. When you’ve finished viewing the document, either close the document by using the “X” button on the top right-hand corner of the screen, or click on the next document you wish to view in the index on the left.

12.When finished with the name you selected, and you wish to search another, click the “new index selection” button and enter the new name.
