Neighborhood Search Program
The list of documents in the Neighborhood Search Program is a working list and should not be considered a complete list of these types of documents recorded with the Register of Deeds. The list is subject to error, omissions, and future modification. As our office continually works to back index the documents in our care, search results from this program will change.
The Register of Deeds has made it's library of neighborhood covenants and restrictions free to search and download.
