No. The Register's office cannot perform a title search, which is the necessary step to take to determine if there is a lien against a particular parcel of land. You may contact a title company or an attorney to provide this service for you. However, the records of the Register's office are open to the public and are accessible via this website or by visiting our office at the location above.
No. A deed is a legal document establishing property ownership. The State of Tennessee prohibits the Register of Deeds and his staff from practicing law. Therefore, we are not permitted to alter a deed, to prepare or revise a deed; we suggest you consult an attorney.
Many documents recorded may be viewed and copied from this website at no charge as a courtesy from the Register. Documents that are not available may be obtained by visiting the Register's office in person or by sending a written request by mail. Requests received by mail will require the names of buyers and sellers (if seller known), date of sale, and the address of subject party. Copies made at the Register's office will be .05 per page, excluding plats, which are $1.50 per page.
Bankruptcies, divorces and other court documents are recorded and indexed as court decrees. However, not all court documents are filed with the Register's office. This will vary according to requirements within a court decree or an individual's personal choice.
