The Buncombe County Register of Deeds maintains all real estate records recorded in this office dating back as early as the 1700's. These documents are public record and range from real estate conveyances, deeds of trust, cancellations of deeds of trust, powers of attorney, assumed names, separation agreements, road maintenance agreements and more.
By North Carolina law, this office does not prepare or change any documents; we are record keepers only. We are able to provide forms for Satisfactions and Assumed Name, but we are not able to assist in the preparation of these or any other documents. If you have legal questions about documents, or require legal documents to be prepared, we recommend that you contact an attorney.
The Register of Deeds can record original documents which contain original signatures and proof of acknowledgment (notarization). By law all documents recorded in the Register of Deeds office are open for public inspection.
Access to these public records is also available at the Register of Deeds Office at 205 College St. in the Public Record Search Room from 8:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m.
