Needham, MA- Norfolk County Register of Deeds William P. O’Donnell and his outreach team will hold office hours Wednesday, February 28th, from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. at Needham Town Hall in the Great Plain Room as part of his ongoing efforts to bring the Registry of Deeds directly to the residents of Norfolk County.
The Registry of Deeds is the principal office for real property records in Norfolk County, cataloging and housing more than 10 million land documents dating back to 1793. The office hours will be held to assist residents with any questions or concerns regarding real property records or land documents.
The Register expressed his strong belief in the benefits of bringing the Registry directly to Needham. “These office hours,” noted the Register, “allow us to bring the services of the Registry of Deeds directly to the citizens of Norfolk County without the inconvenience of having them travel to the Registry’s central office in Dedham.”
By offering office hours in Needham, the Register aims to make it more convenient for residents to access and inquire about real property records. This initiative reflects the Register's commitment to providing efficient and accessible services to the citizens of Norfolk County.
Registry staff are able to provide local residents with certified copies of land documents, such as deeds and mortgage discharges. They can also bring original land documents for residents back to the Registry for recording.
Register O’Donnell concluded by stating, “I understand that not everyone has the ability to travel to the Registry. By offering office hours in Needham, we hope to accommodate those who may have difficulty making it to our main location. Additionally, residents can also utilize our online services to access and request real property records from the comfort of their own homes. Our goal is to ensure that all Norfolk County residents have convenient and flexible options for accessing and inquiring about their real property records.”
