Brunswick County ROD

Deed Scam

There are several companies sending mailings to property owners warning them that they must purchase a current deed. The fee they quote is anywhere from $80 per deed and up. While the mailing may look official, don't pay an unnecessary fee for something you don't need right now.

When you do need a copy of your Brunswick County deed, it is available from our office for a nominal fee. A certified copy is $5 for the first page and $2 each additional page. The cost of an uncertified copy is 25¢ per page plus 50¢ for mailing. Downloaded copies are also available at no charge from our online records website.

The North Carolina Attorney General's Office has gone to court to stop similar mailings. If you or anyone you know have received these mailings, please contact the Attorney General's Office. You can call toll free within North Carolina at 1-877-5-NO-SCAM, at (919) 716-6000 from outside of North Carolina, or at (919) 716-0058 for Spanish speakers.
