Welcome to Essex County’s Public Records Electronic Search System (PRESS).

The Essex County Register’s Office records and archives for public viewing and inspection those documents that record the transfer of real property within the county.

In recent years, the Register’s office has implemented many changes to its records management practices; taking advantage of new technology and innovations to better meet the needs of its public. As of May 13, 2019, all property transactions from May 1, 2001 to present are available electronically in our Public Vault or are searchable remotely via internet. We house 17,741 books, not including electronic recordings. Due to this volume of property transactions, we are unable to provide all of these images electronically however, the Public Vault provides an array of invaluable older records for public viewing dating back to the early 1700’s.

You are welcome to visit our office Mon – Fri from 8:30am – 4:00pm.

NOTICE REGARDING SEARCHES:

CANCELLATIONS OF MORTGAGE PRIOR TO JULY 2, 2012 WERE NOT RECORDED AS ELECTRONIC IMAGES; HOWEVER, THEY ARE DOCUMENTED IN INDEX.

Official copies may be obtained at the Essex County Register’s Office.
