From the Desk of Barry J. Amaral
Hello, and thank you for visiting.
For most Americans, the opportunity for financial security is through home ownership. At the Registry of Deeds, we take very seriously our responsibility to preserve the records of property transactions in Northern Bristol County. The Registry of Deeds maintains a record of documents that may provide the basis for investment decisions and also protects your legal interests.
Now, homeowners, sellers, buyers, and real estate professionals have online access to documents. Online records are available back to 1971, and soon to 1953.
The Registry of Deeds can be a very interesting place, with records of intrigue, great personal and family successes, and even deep despair, dating back to 1686. You can trace all of the owners of your home back to the day someone first marked out the land upon which your home is built -- a fun family project. Visit the Student/Teacher Resource section for more details.
I am very pleased to bring you online access to this important information. Understanding the language of real property, obtaining expert counsel, and accessing key information, at the moment you need it, will improve sound decision-making for everyone.
Thank you for the opportunity to serve.
