As custodians and managers of large numbers of public records, we are proud to provide answers to any questions you may have regarding our office. The Register of Deeds office exists primarily to enable the owner of an interest in property to give public notice of that ownership. Our Land Records date back to 1754, which was the official beginning of Cumberland County.

We also house many other public records, such as notary oaths, births, deaths and marriage licenses. We are pleased to record military discharges (DD214's) free of charge to our retired military.

The General Statutes of North Carolina govern the Register of Deeds. We are responsible for the maintenance, integrity and safekeeping of all public records for which we are legally entrusted. Our office is committed to proper enforcement of these laws as we strive to provide the highest level of customer service.
