Register of Deeds

Serving Franklin County since 2011.


We do NOT accept Credit/Debit cards for payment.

Effective April 1, 2015 the Franklin County Register of Deeds will no longer accept any deed for the transfer of real property unless the Franklin County Tax Collector has certified that no delinquent ad valorem taxes are due to the County.  A deed may also be self-certified by a licensed North Carolina attorney as detailed in the resolution of the Franklin County Board of Commissioners dated December 1, 2014.  If you have any questions regarding this change please feel free to contact the Tax Collector or our office.


The Register of Deeds office serves as the custodian for documents related to real estate located in Franklin County.  The real estate documents date back to 1776.  These documents include deeds, deeds of trust, powers of attorney, maps, etc.  Our office also maintains military discharge records.

You may obtain copies of vital records, such as births, deaths and marriage certificates from this office.  Our birth and death records date back to 1913 and are for those that were born or died here in Franklin County.  Our marriage certificates date back a little more to 1869, but we also have a bond book that goes even further, 1779.  We issue the marriage licenses for those who are getting married and you may now marry in any county in North Carolina, even if you get the license from Franklin County.

We now have the capability to issue birth certificates from 1971 forward through the state vital record system, EBRS, for other counties in North Carolina.  There is an additional charge in order to use this system.  If you have any questions or comments, feel free to contact our office.

We are also excited to announce that Franklin County Register of Deeds now offers an online ordering system, in partnership with Permitium / AIS, for certified or regular copies of birth, deaths and/or marriages. Please choose the Birth, Death & Marriage certificates option to the left to take advantage of this feature!
