Norwood, MA- Continuing his efforts to bring the Registry of Deeds directly to Norfolk County residents, Register of Deeds William P. O’Donnell will be the guest speaker at the Norwood Council on Aging on Monday, June 12th, at 1:00 p.m.
The Register will give an overview of the Registry, which is the principal office for real property records in Norfolk County, cataloging and housing more than 10 million land documents. Also covered in the presentation will be information on the ability to lookup Land Documents dating back to the first ones recorded in 1793 through the Registry of Deeds’ online internet research system. These records are available to the public via the Registry’s website at www.norfolkdeeds.org.
The program will include information of use to consumers and homeowners, such as the Homestead Act, mortgage discharges, and the anti-property fraud Consumer Notification Service. For instance, the Registry’s free Consumer Notification Service sends an automated alert to property owners of any registry activity that contains their name in the associated city or town where they live.
The event will conclude with a brief question-and-answer session to address any specific questions attendees may have.
As part of the Norfolk County Registry of Deeds community outreach initiative, Register O’Donnell offers this program in an effort to provide information as to the functions and services the Registry of Deeds provides to the residents and businesses of Norfolk County.
The Norwood Council on Aging building is located at 275 Prospect Street in Norwood.
