Effective March 2014, Forsyth County Register of Deeds will accept for recording, plats larger than 18” x 24”. Our office was approached recently by a representative from the North Carolina Society of Surveys (NCSS) asking if we would consider recording these larger plats. Up until now we were only recording 18 x 24 inch plats.
By the end of May 2013, the Register of Deeds office will have completed the in-house project of redaction (removal of Social security and driver’s license numbers) from public online records back to 1950, which is when these numbers began to appear on official records.
