The Indexing Correction Request form may be used to correct information that was not indexed correctly in the BOOKS database. The register of deeds has no authority to correct an error appearing in the original instrument, such as a misspelled name, a defective property description or an incorrect loan amount pursuant to
N.C.G.S. § 132-3. The register records the instrument as it is, and under no circumstances alters the text of a recorded instrument.

If you have questions, please send email to or
call 919-856-5472.
