If you own real estate in one of the four cities and towns of Andover, Lawrence, Methuen or North Andover, you can subscribe to this service, free of charge.

If you receive a notification that a document has been recorded in your name please contact the Northern Essex Registry immediately at 978-557-1900 and one of our customer service specialists will look up the record for you and provide you with a free copy. If you suspect the document is fraudulent, feel free to contact the Office of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts Attorney General at 617-727-2200 and the Essex County District Attorney’s Office at 978-745-6610.

Customer Beware!

It has come to our attention that National Grid customers are being contacted by telephone by individuals who claim to be from National Grid and demand payment on their utility bill. They also demand over the phone payment to replace your old meter with new smart meters and threaten customers with service termination within hours if phone payment is not made immediately.
