All records associated with land transactions are recorded, indexed, proofed and scanned through a new indexing and imaging system on a daily basis, providing accurate prompt information. Some of the records include: deeds, mortgages, discharge of mortgages, liens and maps. These records are vital to individuals seeking financing or purchasing and selling properties, and professionals doing title, legal and engineering work. Each record is also microfilmed and stored off-premise for safe keeping, as required by law, at a storage facility specifically for the protection and storage of such records should there be a catastrophic event at the Town Hall facility.
