The Register of Deeds Office
 serves as custodian and manager of a large number of public records, including deeds, deeds of trust, and subdivision plats.

The Office also maintains files of Dare County Board of Commissioners meetings, Dare County Airport Authority minutes, and Military Discharge records.

The Register of Deeds Office issues marriage licenses and supplies copies of birth and death certificates in Dare County. The General Statutes of North Carolina govern the Register of Deeds Office which has the responsibility of protecting the integrity, completeness, accuracy and safekeeping of these public records.

We ask that marriage license applicants arrive no later than 4:30 PM
