Register of Deeds Notice

Recording Real Estate documents

During this State of Emergency, we strongly encourage all documents to be electronically recorded. In an effort to help with this transition our eRecording vendor, Simplifile, has agreed to waive all startup fees and annual costs throughout the State of Emergency. There will be no changes to how we handle documents that are eRecorded or mailed to our office.

For those who want to record documents in person, you must use the new drop box located just outside of our office. We will have a skeleton crew in the office to record documents during regular business hours: Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. The drop box will be checked multiple times throughout the day and all documents that are dropped off by 4:30 p.m. will be recorded the same day.

Birth, Death and Marriage Certificates

All certified copies of birth, death and marriage certificates will be available for purchase online only. The Buncombe County Register of Deeds office will charge you only the regular cost of the certificate, $10. There will be no surcharge for our online service or for mailing you the certificate. To purchase a certificate go to buncombecounty.org/birth.

Marriage Licenses and Notary Oaths

Marriage Licenses and Notary Oaths Marriage licenses and notary oaths will be available daily by appointment only. Since these services must be in person because we have to verify each person’s identity and see them sign, we ask that you only come in at your scheduled time and only if you are not sick. We also promise that only healthy staff are allowed to serve you. Appointments can be made online here.
