Neighborhood Search Program

The list of documents in the Neighborhood Search Program is a working list and should not be considered a complete list of these types of documents recorded with the Register of Deeds.  The list is subject to error, omissions, and future modification.  As our office continually works to back index the documents in our care, search results from this program will change.  If you enter a condo or subdivision name and see it listed but followed by the word "NOTE" (for example:  ABC CONDO - NOTE), then you won't receive documents available for the search.  You would need to visit the Register of Deeds office to research further.

The Register of Deeds has made it's library of neighborhood covenants and restrictions free to search and download.

Find your neighborhood documents here.
