The Register of Deeds office acts as a recording office only. North Carolina General Statutes specifically prohibit the Register of Deeds or the staff from practicing law. We are unable to supply legal forms, provide instructions on drafting or completing forms, or answer questions regarding the legal consequences of instruments filed. We advise you to consult an attorney if you have any legal questions.
