Register of Deeds

About the Register of Deeds Office


The Register of Deeds office serves as custodian for various public records by recording and preserving deeds, deeds of trust, powers of attorney, plats and various other legal documents. The Register of Deeds office issues certified birth and death certificates, marriage licenses and military discharges. We are here to serve the public and maintain Scotland County's most important public records.

Please note: due to the nature of the documents we issue, we require a valid photo identification card to release a certified record.
