Notice Regarding "Deed Copy" Solicitation Mailers
March 3rd, 2022
Regarding Reports of Recorded Deed Copy Mailers
The Iredell County Register of Deeds has received multiple calls concerning “Recorded Deed” notices that homeowners are receiving via mail. These notices are often sent by private companies that generate their own “invoices” that appear at first glance to be bills. Further examination of the fine print at the bottom of most documents reveal these to be business solicitation attempts. These companies often charge large “processing fees” of $90+ in exchange for them mailing you copies of your recorded deed, which is a matter of public record.
- You have the right to request a copy of your recorded deed from the Iredell County Register of Deeds Office without utilizing these overpriced services.
- The cost for a certified copy of a recorded deed is $5.00 for the first page, and $2.00 per additional page. Uncertified copies of documents can be obtained for just 0.25 cents per page.
Don’t fall victim to these official looking mailers. If your deed has been recorded in the Register of Deeds office, your recording is on record regardless of whether a copy is in your possession or not.
Property records are public information available in person, by phone (704-872-7468), or online at www.iredellcountync.gov/registerofdeeds.
