How do I obtain a copy of the map to my property?

All survey or subdivision maps recorded since 1885 are available online using the Consolidated Real Property Index system free of charge.

  • Typically, the individual lot surveys are not recorded with the Register of Deeds office.
  • Copies of maps from the Consolidated Real Property Index system are available at the Register of Deeds office
    • A certified copy of a map is $5 per copy.

Note: Survey map book numbers begin with 'BM' (Book of Maps) followed by the year of recording (e.g., BM1999). Survey maps are separated into NC (North Carolina), LRM (Land Records Management), and COTT data according to record date, with the following exception. Maps recorded before 1978 will be found in NC Land Records Management database because they were recently added to the system.

Search Type Description:
NC LRM Standards = 10/1/91 to present and backfile prior to 1/1/74
