WHO WE ARE:
The Hudson County Register is a Elected Officer of the County elected to office by the voters of Hudson County for a 5-year term. The main purposes of the office are recording, filing and preserving all formal written documents affecting real property within the County.
The Register’s Office generates revenue through a statutory fee schedule. The fees collected far exceed the cost of the operating budget for the Register’s Office resulting in a self-sustained department, and contributing the revenues collected over the cost of operation toward lowering the County Budget.
WHAT WE DO:
Documents affecting ownership and transfer of property within Hudson County are received daily by general delivery, messenger service, priority mail service and walk-ins. The documents are checked for compliance with the statutory recording requirements, priced and then recorded. They are given an identifying Instrument number, assigned a Book & Page number and entered into the Index. The Index is available on computer and hard copy for perusal by anyone trying to locate a particular document or transaction.
Our congenial staff will assist you in obtaining a copy of your Deed. To better serve your needs, our office is open Monday through Friday from 8:00 A.M. to 5:00 P.M. If you come in person, please come equipped with names of owners and an approximate date of title transfer. Regular copies are 5 cents per page. Certified copies are $10.00 for the certification and first page plus $1.50 each additional page.
