In a recently passed SB 704, there have been a number of issues due to Covid‐19 that have
affected the citizens of our state and the following is now in effect:

  • Section 4.13(b) extends marriage license expiration to 120 days, for licenses issued
    after February 1 and before August 1.

    Any Marriage License issued during this time period will now be good for 120 days
    instead of the usual 60 days. We hope that this will be a benefit to those that have
    had to postpone marriages for a variety of reasons.

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.
