Welcome: Matthew S. Willis, Harnett County Register of Deeds


On Monday, May 9, 2022, the Harnett County Register of Deeds office will go live with the new software from Courthouse Computer Systems.  Courthouse Computer Systems is a local company based out of Chapel Hill, North Carolina.  Currently Courthouse Computer Systems software is in 31 counties throughout North Carolina.  Along with saving taxpayer money, the program is user friendly and easy to navigate.  Please find some important information below concerning the upgrade:

  • Submitters who send documents in electronically will continue to do so as they have in the past. Continue to submit documents through your eRecording vendor.
  • All hyperlinks on the county website page will be updated as quickly as possible on May 9th. If you are accessing the system and cannot pull a document, please contact our office and we will be happy to assist you during this transition.
  • There will no longer be a login and password for our system. If you currently use a login and password, please contact our office so we may update records and share some important information as to how to access images in the system.
  • Online indexes to all birth, death and marriages will be available.
  • Fraud notification will be available with the new system. Simply register with your email address and you will be notified if a document is recorded in your name.

Please contact our office if you have any questions.  (910) 893-7540

Thank you,

Matthew S. Willis

Greetings from the Harnett County Register of Deeds!

Welcome to the Harnett County Register of Deeds website. I encourage you to use our website to search real estate transactions, births, deaths and marriages. Our website has available Real Estate Indexes and images dated back to 1855. We currently have available indexes for births, deaths and marriages dated back to 1892. We strive to provide you with the most up to date information possible. For your convenience the images are available in multiple formats. We also have many commonly used forms available for download directly from the website. If we can assist you further, or you do not find the forms for your particular needs, feel free to call and we will be more than happy to assist you.

The Register of Deeds and staff strive to give customers immediate assistance when providing copies or recording and amending records allowed by statute. Our user friendly system helps citizens access records easily. The office takes great pride in keeping up to date records immediately available.
