Obtain a Copy of Your Deed
You can obtain a copy of your deed by going to www.masslandrecords.com, to download and/or print it for free. Documents prior to 1973 can be found in our book vault or be ordered from the Registry of Deeds. If your property is Registered Land, you may obtain a copy of it online. Otherwise, to obtain a copy of your deed from the Registry please send your request with the book and page reference or document number reference of the deed you are looking for to P.O. Box 5231, Edgartown, MA 02539. If you do not know the title reference, please list the owners name, street address and town where the property is located. Do not forget to note your return address on your request. All requests for copies must be prepaid. Copies cost $1.00 per page and the Registry does require either a self addressed stamped envelope or $1.00 per document for return postage. If you have questions about how much your copies will cost please call us at (508) 627-4025.
The Registry of Deeds cannot do a title search for you. If you are looking to research a title or need copies of more than just your deed you can contact an independent title examiner. There are many people who make their living doing title examinations who are at the Registry every day. We would be happy to provide you with the names of examiners if you need one.
