MEDFIELD – Norfolk County Register of Deeds William P. O’Donnell and his outreach team held office hours last week in town, giving residents a chance to meet with him.
The officer hours were held on Feb. 8 at the Medfield Town House.
"These county office hours allow us to bring registry services directly to the citizens of Norfolk County without the inconvenience of having them travel to the registry’s central office in Dedham," O’Donnell said.
The Registry of Deeds is the principal office for real property records in Norfolk County, cataloguing and housing more than 6 million land documents dating back to 1793.
O’Donnell and his team met with members of the public and answered questions on a wide range of registry issues, including the importance of recording mortgage discharges in a timely manner.
Registry staff was also able to provide residents with certified copies of land documents, such as property deeds.
"I want to thank the Medfield Board of Selectmen, Town Administrator Michael Sullivan and the entire staff at town hall for their generosity in allowing us to hold office hours," O’Donnell said.
