Welcome to the Brunswick County Register Of Deeds website. Our office provides numerous services to the working community and general public. These include recording legal documents and maps, issuing marriage licenses, certifying documents, and administering oaths. Registers Of Deeds are elected for 4-year terms by the citizens of the county the Registrar serves.

North Carolina General Statute 161-14 authorizes our office to record and file documents; however, we cannot give legal advice or help in preparing documents. See General Statutes Chapter 84.

The links on this page provide you with additional information that we hope you will find useful. If you need help or have comments, please phone or e-mail us.

Thank you,

Brenda M. Clemmons
