PUBLIC NOTICE reference to NC/SC Boundrary Clarification 

Effective January 1st, 2017 Boundary Clarification between NC and SC 

The Register of Deeds (ROD) records land titles, liens and other documents pertaining to property transactions in Cherokee County.  The office is responsible for preserving these records and making them accessible to the public.  The Cherokee County Register of Deeds maintains land records dating back to 1897 when the county was created.  We offer access to these records free of charge through our online public records search and provide certified copies from our office for a small fee.  Please be aware that our staff is unable to provide legal advice or perform title searches.

In South Carolina, the Register of Deeds office was originally called the Register of Mesne Conveyance (RMC).  A mesne conveyance is an intermediate transfer; it occupies an intermediate position in the chain of title between the first grantee and the present holder.  On January 1, 1998, the name Register of Mesne Conveyance was changed by state law to Register of Deeds.
