Register of Deeds
We are governed by three state agencies: the Legislature, the Secretary of State and North Carolina Vital Records. The Institute of Government advises us with any questions that may arise.
We assist attorneys, land surveyors, realtors, ministers, funeral homes, genealogists, and the general public. Our goal is to always provide prompt, professional service with a smile!

Edgecombe County Register of Deeds Office wants to protect the identities of our citizens. During the online application process, the data you provide will be analyzed and additional "personal knowledge" questions will need to be answered. This information will ensure us that when we process your order, the certificate will be sent to the appropriate person and location.
