The Land Court of Massachusetts has statewide jurisdiction over the Registration of Title to real property, Foreclosure and Redemption of Real Estate tax liens. The Court has superintendence authority over the registered land offices in each Registry of Deeds. The Register of Deeds serves as an Assistant Recorder of the Land Court. The registered land section is a separate department from the recorded land section of the Registry of Deeds.
Beginning June 1, 2022, the Middlesex North registered land section will return all newly-recorded registered land documents to customers by return mail. When submitting documents for registration, please include a self-addressed stamped envelope of sufficient size and with sufficient postage to return you documents to you.
A Transfer Certificate of Title is issued showing all mortgages, liens, encumbrances etc., on the certificate. Documents filed in the registered section are assigned document numbers not book and page numbers. Registered land documents, images, indices, certificates and plans are available at the registry and online at Masslandrecords.com from 1899 to the present.
