New Hanover County issued a statement this week about the register of deeds, a critical component for the real estate industry.
"The Register of Deeds is open and serving customers Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m," the Thursday release stated.
According to the release, the following practices (that apply most to real estate professionals) are in place to reduce the amount of foot traffic in offices and lessen the risk for customers and staff:
