Essex County Register of Deeds and Mortgage’s Office Information

The Essex County Register of Deeds and Mortgage’s Office preserves and records property transactions for all 22 municipalities within the County. A copy of every deed and mortgage recorded since 1637 is on file in the Register’s Office. These documents are preserved in the Record Room. This section of the office is open to interested citizens, attorneys, title searchers, historians and genealogists for their research, reference and study. This office also maintains documents pertaining to mortgages and transactions for liens, foreclosures, mortgage cancellations as well as discharges for veterans.

Since December 1988, the recording and indexing of all documents has been computerized which has simplified the indexing process and significantly reduced the turnaround time for recording, copying, and returning documents to senders. The documents are scanned and archived in image format, which are later available to the public on computer in the office only, but not online.
