Important Notices re: Guilford County Register of Deeds

(From ROD Newsletter to be released tonight!)

The Register of Deeds new computer system through Business Information Systems (BIS) plans to "Go-Live" on Monday, July 17th at 8 am!

While this date is less than a month away, there are still many issues that can effect our ability to successfully met this goal. Our plan is to communicate to you as quickly as possible any issues that may effect the July 17th date. We are currently cleaning up and converting our real estate and vital records data, reviewing the particulars of the software system, and training our employees. This effort has proven to be arduous yet exciting for our staff. The twenty-four year old computer system will be transformed to reflect a progressive office with state-of-the-art technology.

As we move to our July 17th date, there are three very important notices that need to be shared with you:

The online search component will not be available from Friday, July 14 at 5:00pm until July 17, Monday morning due to data conversion between Guilford County IS and BIS. We apologize for this inconvenience and ask that you please plan accordingly.

Title searchers should attend one of the trainings outlined in the newsletter in Greensboro or High Point. There will also be an internally developed online tutorial available by July 5th at Take advantage of every opportunity to learn the system!

If there is any difficulty in service or you want to offer feedback, let us know immediately! Please call our office at ph. 641-7556 or via email at
Questions or issues related to the ROD Land Records Online Search can be addressed through the BIS customer support line at ph. (866) 800-6504. We want to resolve any difficulties without delay and make adjustments where necessary to help you.


  • Good newsletter. I'm glad to see the system change and look forward to the training. Will you all be updating the county's data viewer at some point?

    The viewer is really awful and its has some potential.

  • Tax, Planning, Register of Deeds, Community Development and Geographic Information Services have all made a commitment to upgrade the current GIS data viewer.

    We hope to have something available to the public in the next six months. We have all received feedback on the current site and I'm hopeful we'll make the necessary upgrades!
